Locals once again gave generously to the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal with several thousand dollars collected.

The Dimboola Lions Club held a raffle that contributed to them raising $2,938.80, and the Jeparit Fire Brigade collected over $3,000 from Jeparit residents and visitors who were staying around the Wimmera River and Lake Hindmarsh.

Through another raffle and cash donations, entrants in the Jeparit Easter Fishing Competition also contributed over $2,000 to this cause.

This year, a record-breaking $22,328,154 was donated to The Royal Children’s Hospital through the Good Friday Appeal, with $2,581,661 raised in regional and rural Victoria alone.
