2014 Good Friday Appeal

Like many towns and cities around the country the Geelong region is pulling together to help one of Australia’s most respected charities, the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

This appeal helps support kids in need and continue to build world leading facilities at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. A hospital that has helped and cared for so many of our young.
