Southern Cross Austereo Goulburn Valley Sales Director Steve Hetherton said: “I’m continually amazed at the generosity of the wider community when it comes to raising funds via Give Me 5 for Kids. Our dedicated staff, loyal listeners & local businesses get behind the cause each & every year.
I’m proud that we have been able to raise a record amount & with these funds staying local we can make a difference to the lives of sick children in the Goulburn Valley.
We would like to thank Paul Archer & his team at Natrad Shepparton for their outstanding and record-breaking contribution & all the other local businesses who donated.
We would also like to acknowledge the wonderful staff at Goulburn Valley Health who also get behind the cause.
Above all, we whole-heartedly thank the entire Goulburn Valley community for digging deep. Every dollar donated to the Give Me 5 for Kids will help make a difference to a sick local child and their family. We look forward to seeing the benefits of these donations over the coming year”.
