Victoria’s Good Friday Appeal, for the Royal Children’s Hospital, is one of the most popular and emotional annual events in the state. The ‘unofficial’ launch of the appeal, as described by its host, is ‘Neil’s Wheel’, when 3AW’s morning host Neil Mitchell invites organisations to ride the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel until they raise at least $10,000.
Once again, GRV was invited to take the trip to be elevated 120 metres over the CBD, and once again the target has been reached, and is being exceeded.
GRV Chair Peita Duncan, CEO Alan Clayton, Deputy Chair Greg Miller and National Adoption Day Ambassador Todd McKenney took to the wheel at 8.40am and were ‘released’ an hour later when the donations reached $10,681.
The greyhound racing community is known for its generosity, so please donate so we can showcase this by helping Peita’s Team GAP/GRV climb the leaderboard.
