The Royal Children's Hospital has been providing outstanding care for Victorian children and their families for over 140 years.
Recognised internationally as a leading centre for research and education, The Royal Children’s Hospital is the specialist paediatric hospital in Victoria providing care which extends to children from Tasmania, southern New South Wales and other states around Australia and overseas.
The Good Friday Appeal is one of Victoria’s most widely recognised charity initiatives and represents the hospital’s biggest singular fundraising drive each year.
This year, The Good Friday Appeal will celebrate its 83rd year of contributing to The Royal Children’s Hospital. Thanks to the kind generosity and co-operation of thousands of individuals and companies across Victoria, The Good Friday Appeal has contributed more than $245 million to The Royal Children’s Hospital since its inception in 1931. These funds have been used to purchase essential medical equipment, fund vital research projects and provide much sought after scholarships for staff to further their knowledge and experience.
One of the major contributions to The Good Friday Appeal is the annual charity auction proudly supported by Henley and Villawood Properties.
