Local efforts impress

Young people today can come under a lot of criticism, but the youth of the region made an invaluable and fantastic contribution to this year’s record-breaking Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal collection.
More than $18M was raised this year across the state, with local contributions impressive across the region.
In the Kyneton district more than $31,500 was raised by volunteer collectors, local clubs, fire brigades and local businesses.
The Castlemaine Fire Brigade and community volunteers collected $15,778.
With help of 57 cubs and scouts, Gisborne firefighters and junior brigade members took to the streets to raise $13,676.
Family and friends and Woodend CFA volunteers made up the bulk of the more than 40 collectors in Woodend to raise a near record $13,135. Appeal coordinators from all districts congratulated all of their volunteers on an incredible contribution.
