Good Friday Appeal

Over many years of support, CFA members have raised more than $34 million for the Good Friday Appeal, to support the Royal Children's Hospital with their life saving care for our kids.

This year, with social distancing rules in place, the traditional tin rattle that our Brigades have run has had to move online. More than 160 CFA Brigades have registered for the Virtual Tin Shake and more have signed up in recent days.

Visit https://www.virtualtinshake.com/#supporterSearch  and search for your closest CFA Brigade that has registered for a virtual tin.

At last count - the following CFA Brigades had indicated they're pre-registration, with many others joining after the closing date for notification:

QuinnieIt’s hard to imagine that vivacious six-year-old Quinnie almost had her life stop before it could even really begin.

This years Royal Children's Hospital Ambassador

In 2014, Quinnie’s twin Harriet, had passed away in the womb after the umbilical cord had wrapped around her in three places, resulting in the oxygen supply to her surviving sister being cut off, causing Quinnie to born by emergency caesarean and in kidney failure.

She spent the first three and half months of her life at the RCH connected to dialysis, followed by two years at home bound to her dialysis machine. At 33 months old she received a kidney transplant, which has transformed her life.

Whilst she has ongoing medical complications and will continue to be seen by RCH specialists until she transitions into adult care, the impact the RCH has had on Quinnie means she now goes to school like other 6 year olds and enjoys getting up to mischief with her little brother.

Thanks to your generous support, we can make a difference to children like Quinnie and help The Royal Children’s Hospital remain a world leader in paediatric care.
