After raising a record amount last year, the Bacchus Marsh Lions Club are again seeking volunteers to help collect money for the 2019 Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
The Lions Club will be rattling tins leading up to and on Good Friday, 19 April, and are on the lookout for members of the community who are willing to lend a hand.
“If you have some spare time, either in the days leading up to Good Friday or on the day itself, and are able assist, we would love to hear from you,” said club spokesperson Ralph Fletcher.
The local volunteer run Club has been associated with the Good Friday Appeal since 2005, and last year raised a record total of $30,734.
As well as roaming collectors, there will be purple Good Friday Appeal cans on the counters of supportive local businesses throughout Bacchus Marsh.
If you can lend a hand on Good Friday, you can register at the Bacchus Marsh Fire Station any time after 9am.
All volunteers are issued with an unpaid volunteer name tag, a high visibility vest and a collection can.
Good Friday personal donations can be made at the Bacchus Marsh Fire Station, Main Street on Friday, 19 April.
