Fair raises $106,572 for Very Special Kids

The Very Special Kids’ Fair was a huge success on Saturday, raising an amazing total of $106,572 to support children with life-threatening conditions, and their families.

The Fair was held on the grounds of Very Special Kids in Malvern and over 2,250 people attended.  Despite showers and a few worries it couldn’t go ahead, it was an amazing action packed and fun filled day, with plenty to do and see. Children had the opportunity to meet Dr Suess’ Cat in the Hat and the Lorax, alongside Shrek & Puss in Boots, as well as AFL mascots from Hawthorn, Melbourne, Richmond and Sydney. The smells of delicious food wafted around the grounds of Very Special Kids and many left with arms filled with fresh fruit and vegetables, flowers, homemade jams and toys.

On behalf of Very Special Kids, we wish to thank all of the volunteers, of which there were over 350, who generously gave their time to support the Fair. Your ongoing support helps us to continue to provide vital support to over 900 families across Victoria by providing essential family support services and access to respite and end-of-life care at Very Special Kids Hospice.

We would also like to thank all individuals, businesses and organisations that kindly donated products and services to help support Very Special Kids. The success of these events rely heavily on community support and we couldn’t have done it without you! And finally, a big, big thank you to everyone who attended, your support is very much appreciated.
