After raising more than $160,000 in 2018, 95.3 Triple M has already begun preparation for Give Me 5 for Kids 2019, with an audacious goal to make it the biggest and best year yet!

“We are incredibly proud of the Shepperton community for this year’s stellar result which will enable Goulburn Valley Health to continue supporting local children in hospital, said general manager Steve Hetherton.

” We are overwhelmed by this astonishing result “added GV Health Foundation Director Carmel Johnson

Money raised will allow us to purchase equipment for our Child & Adolescent Unit and Special Care Nursery such as new paediatric beds and cots, as well as a state of the art isolette for our premmie babies. Give Me 5 for Kids 2019 will power ahead without much-loved local Paul Archer who has worked tirelessly over the past six years, generating hundreds of thousands for the GM5FK intuitive through his annual Battery Drive. - GV Health Foundation Director Carmel Johnson

“Paul is taking a well-deserved break from Give Me 5 for Kids this year after many years of being a key contributor”, said Steve Hetherton. “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul for his incredible work which has had an enormous impact on the lives of sick local children”.

In Paul’s absence, 95.3 Triple M is working hard on a series of new and existing tactics, setting the benchmark high for 2019.

“It will be challenging to exceed this year’s result, but with the support of our local community and the dedication of our local team, we believe we can make 2019 the biggest and best year yet”, said Steve.

Locals can look forward to Trivia at the Aussie Hotel, Lisa’s Plant Sale and the IGA Market Day continuing, as well as new events including Business Breakfast at the Parklake Hotel, Girls Night Out at Shepparton Greyhound Association and the All Australian Mower Racing Titles.

“The diverse range of activities on offer in 2019 will mean the entire Goulburn and Murray Valley community will be able to get involved”, said Steve.

“Goulburn Valley Health is extremely thankful for the support we get each year from Triple M and the Goulburn Valley Community, and warmly congratulates Paul Archer for his tremendous contribution to this year’s success and all those preceding”, said Carmel Johnson. 

Give Me 5 for Kids runs each year in June, but donations are accepted year-round.
