Children’s hospital support a college ‘victory’

VICTORY College student leaders have thrown their support behind Woolworths' campaign to raise more than $500,000 for the Children's Hospital Foundation.

The annual Easter Wall Token campaign has become Woolworths' biggest fundraising activity for the foundation, contributing to more than $32 million raised over 29 years for clinical and medical research, state-of-the-art medical equipment, facilities and patient support.

With the help of local ambassadors, the bar has been set higher to raise even more funds for sick and injured children across the state this Easter.

Local shoppers can expect to see familiar faces behind the Woolworths checkout throughout March and April with local personalities, sporting heroes, councillors, and community members appearing in their local store to rally support for the cause.

Victory College principal Johannes Solymosi said the college was thrilled to be supporting the Children's Hospital Foundation Easter Wall Token campaign.

"The funds raised are crucial to helping sick kids get back on their feet," he said.

Easter Wall Tokens are on sale for $2 at all Woolworths stores until April 6, with shoppers encouraged to display theirs in store as a silent symbol of support to the many local families.
