RACE FOR KIDS - Good Friday Appeal April 3rd - $3083.14  Donated to the Good Friday Appeal for 2015

SERCCC would like to thank everyone that helped and all those who came along to the Good Friday Appeal "Race For Kids" event. We are very proud to announce the final total raised for the Good Friday Appeal was $3083.14 breaking our previous record in 2013 of $2500, Well done to everyone and thank you so much for your support throughout this event. "give that they may grow!"

In 2012 and 2013 South Eastern Radio Control Car club raised close to $2500 each year. In 2015 our aim is to do it exactly the same thing! So come along and help our club raise money for the kids in need at the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

For Event information please view the bottom of this page.

Each year the Good Friday Appeal brings together people from all parts of the community to raise much needed funds for equipment, research and education to support the work of The Royal Children's Hospital.

The strength of the Good Friday Appeal lies with the thousands of people who volunteer their time, expertise and creativity to organise fundraising activities throughout the year. Together they have raised more than $258 million for the benefit of the hospital since the Good Friday Appeal began in 1931. The activities of the Good Friday Appeal lead up to an all-day telethon, broadcast live across Victoria on Good Friday and supported by the Herald Sun, Channel 7 and 3AW 693.

The Good Friday Appeal is a non-denominational, non-political organisation that exists solely to raise funds for the benefit of The Royal Children's Hospital. To find out more about The Royal Children's Hospital please visit www.rch.org.au


The Good Friday Appeal started in 1931 when a group of sportsmen and journalists from The Herald & Weekly Times Pty Ltd (HWT) publication "The Sporting Globe" organised a sporting carnival in aid of charity and nominated the Royal Children's Hospital as a beneficiary.

In 1942, the Managing Director of HWT agreed that The Herald and radio station 3DB should promote an annual appeal on Good Friday. In 1957, Channel 7 joined The Good Friday Appeal and began the first day-long telethon. Channel 7 Melbourne and HWT have remained major supporters of The Good Friday Appeal and in recent years 3AW 693 and Magic 1278 became official radio supporters.

The Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal ABN 69 084 797 965, (Registered Fundraiser 12662) is now a public company in its own right and is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a deductible gift recipient. Donations to the Good Friday Appeal are for the benefit of the Hospital and are channelled through the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation.
