Good Friday Appeal raises $18,200,000

Victorian appeal breaks a record despite being on air for just one hour.

The Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal has raised a record $18,200,000 -despite having a one hour special in place of its annual telethon.

At 8pm on Friday the donation tally was at $7,180,897 -thanks to year-long fundraising, corporate donations and a “virtual tin shake” in place of volunteers.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced his government would make up the shortfall.

“The Good Friday Appeal supports the neediest kids – kids that are sick – and their families, every year, and we can’t leave the kids short this year,” Andrews told Channel 7 last night.
