Despite their efforts being cut short by a call-out, the Hillcrest CFA has raised a total of $4237.80 for the Good Friday appeal.

Brigade members were patrolling the streets of Don Valley, Launching Place and Woori Yallock from 9.30am on Friday 29 March, shaking tins and knocking on doors of local community members for their fundraising effort.

The Hillcrest crew also held another Wednesday 20 March, where brigade members covered Cairncroft Avenue, Alpine Boulevard, Cairnview Court, Grand Panorama Court and Scenic Drive in Woori Yallock.

It was a record-breaking year for the Good Friday Appeal in 2024, with $23,368,724 raised for the Royal Children’s Hospital, over $300,000 better than the record set in 2023.

Over $444 million has been raised to support the hospital to continue to cater and care for kids and their families since the inception of the Good Friday Appeal in 1932.
