A great day at the annual fair

The Very Special Kids Fair was held on Saturday in glorious sunshine, and raised over $95,000 for families caring for a child with a life threatening condition.

The grounds of Very Special Kids in Malvern were a hive of activity with families enjoying a great day out. Children joined in with Very Special Kids’ own music therapist Pip, and heard a reading of Vikki Conley’s beautiful new book, Christmas Wonder. There were photos galore with Alex the Lion from Madagascar and Dinosaur Train’s Buddy & Tiny and a handball competition with AFL players and mascots. The much-loved Aero Bounce Bungy Trampolines gave big and little kids alike a bird’s eye view of the animal farm and busy food stalls down below.

The fair wouldn’t be the success it is without the ongoing support of individuals and business who kindly donated products and services to help us raise much-needed funds. Thank you to everyone who attended, donated and helped provide a fantastic day.

And of course, a huge thank you to our amazing volunteers, who are so very generous with their time to support our events. You are the lifeblood of Very Special Kids. Thank you for helping to bring hope into the lives of the families that we care for.
