KICKING off in June this year with fundraising events including an annual battery drive and trivia night, this year’s Give Me 5 for Kids events have seen $130,255.02 raised during the initiative.
Running since the late 90s, this year’s initiative will provide funds to GV Health’s Children’s Ward in hope of providing an eneurisis alarm, Graseby apnoea monitors, combination weighing scales/stadiometer/BMI calculator, wall mounted opthalmoscope, holter monitors, Dynamap blood pressure monitors, desk/wall mounted digital BP monitors, woods light, pan opthalmoscope, vein viewer and an ECG machine. Funds are also hoped to be used to make medical imaging upgrades as well as upgrades to the procedural room and waiting room at GV Health’s Children’s Ward.
95 3SR FM General Manager, Leanne Hulm said, “95 3SR FM would like to acknowledge not only the work that 95 3SR FM do in raising this much needed money, but also the community. We could not achieve our goals if it wasn’t for the community support across the month of June. We at 95 3SR FM are proud to support GV Health and the Children’s Ward.”
