Get ready for Radiothon

9 October 2020

Our annual Radiothon fundraising event is set for Friday, 16 October. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we can no longer host an event inside the hospital so for the very first time, Radiothon will be hosted online.

Radiothon is a 12-hour fundraising appeal for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, helping to support the purchase of the very latest equipment, lifesaving research and vital services for patients and their families. This year, Radiothon will be held on Friday 16 October from 6am – 6pm and will see all donations made on the day doubled by generous matchers.

For the first time in Radiothon history, the day will culminate in a 90-minute virtual event hosted by Australian TV presenter, Melissa Doyle. The virtual event will run from 4pm – 5.30pm on radiothon.org.au and will include entertainment, special performances and stories from patients, families and staff to show just how important your support is. 

More information will be shared closer to the date but for now, mark Friday 16 October 2020 in your diaries.

For any enquiries, please contact Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation Event Manager, Katrina Topfer.
