For the first time in 60 years, there will be no all-day telethon for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, the Appeal has had to cancel its signature event, the traditional Good Friday telethon, as well as other events including Kids Day Out, Run For The Kids and the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt.
Instead of the telethon, host broadcaster Seven in Melbourne will present a one-hour Good Friday Appeal Special, hosted by Peter Mitchell and Jane Bunn, to pay tribute to the work and achievements of the Royal Children’s Hospital, which this year celebrates its 150th year.
Despite the lack of telethon and public events, the Appeal will continue to raise funds via its website:
