Celebrations at Coffs Harbour Base Hospital on Wednesday as Triple M presented a cheque to the Children's Ward for Give Me 5 For Kids.

This year, Triple M Coffs Coast joined up with the local team from Woolworths to raise $99,531.50.

Support and generosity from Coffs Coast locals in June has given the hospital the funds to be able to purchase much needed equipment.

During the month, Triple M's Breakfast host, Moffee, launched the campaign broadcasting from the top of a 20 metre boom lift in strong winds at the Jetty Foreshore, plus he walked 50km in 5 days from Woolgoolga to Sawtell pulling a wheelie bin.

"To see the difference we can all make, and to know the money is going towards equipment for our own hospital here in Coffs Harbour is so rewarding", Moffee said.

The local team from Woolworths held special BBQs for the fundraiser at their stores right across the Coffs Coast.

Woolworths' Troy Pinder said, "the involvement in the community for us means we can give back to the community we serve".

"To be able to partner with Triple M to deliver almost $100,000 for the local children's ward means the world to us all", Mr Pinder said.

Triple M's Give Me 5 For Kids is held each June to raise funds for the Children's Ward in Coffs Harbour.
