Good Friday Appeal 2019

Congratulations and thank you to our Pied Piper community who helped raise $238,622 for the 2019 Good Friday Appeal!

We had over 800 students/ parents/ teachers door to door collecting for 5 secondary schools. Thank you Yarra Valley, Loretto, Wesley, St Kevin’s and Trinity.

400 volunteers shook tins in the beautiful sunshine across 19 intersections in metropolitan Melbourne.

At Kids Day Out, we had 100 volunteers helping at Polly Woodside, mini golf, hair braiding, hair extensions and our roving magicians and entertainers.

Back in September, we had 100 volunteers selling the Mark Knight premiership posters.

Thank you to all our volunteers for taking the time out of their lives to volunteer.

March 2017

It’s hard to believe that Christmas and New Years celebration are a distant memory and we are well into March 2017!

But with March brings the excitement of another successful Good Friday Appeal! Preparations are well and truly underway and Good Friday 2017 is shaping up to be another action-packed, fun-filled and successful fundraising event.

Each year, Good Friday for the Pied Pipers involves:

  • Donation collections at major intersections around Melbourne
  • Kids Day Out at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
  • House-to-house door knocking by secondary school students and supervisors

Remember that all money raised for the Good Friday Appeal goes towards research, equipment and technology, patient and family-centred care and leadership, education and training at the Royal Children’s Hospital.

So if you’d like to be involved, jump on to our volunteer page and fill out a volunteer form!
