Good Friday is a special time of the year. It means different things for all of us but most importantly it brings people together.
For those in Victoria, the Good Friday Appeal is an event that we all can relate to and brings the entire state together in an effort to raise money for a very important cause.
This year, for the first time, Melbourne Storm is partnering with the Good Friday Appeal, helping to celebrate 90 years of giving for the kids at the Royal Children’s Hospital.
Last Friday Felise Kaufusi, Harry Grant and Max King visited some of the brave kids and amazing staff ahead of their Good Friday clash against the Broncos.
The Club will be helping to raise funds through a number of activities having already contributed nearly $20,000 when CEO, Justin Rodski, and skipper, Dale Finucane, joined 3AW’s Neil Mitchell for his “Escape from Neil’s Wheel” event at the Melbourne Star.
“The Good Friday Appeal is an event that we can all relate to in some way, either directly or having known someone who has been in the care of the wonderful people at the Royal Children’s Hospital,” Rodski said.
“So many children and their families have benefitted from the generosity of Victorians who donate to the appeal every year, even in tough times. To see the smiles on the faces of the children and staff when Felise, Harry and Max visited them on Friday is priceless, but to help raise important funds so the Royal Children’s Hospital can continue delivering the best possible care is what we hope to deliver this year and for many years to come.”
Storm Members and fans attending the Good Friday match can make a donation when redeeming their tickets to the AAMI Park match and there will be activations in the lead up to and during the Bronco’s clash.
