Once again, Belgrave will play host to the annual Belgrave Carnival in support of the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
To be held on Good Friday 2015, the carnival will feature an amazing array of rides, food stalls, animal displays, face-painting, music and of course, an Easter Egg hunt.
The carnival will be held between 10am and 3pm on 3 April 2015 at St. Thomas Moore Primary School, Reynolds Lane, Belgrave. Featuring great carnival rides, a reptile petting zoo, farm animals, face painting and roving entertainment as well as a variety of food and beverages, the carnival is designed as an all-inclusive family day out.
All proceeds from the day will be donated to the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
The event is being organised by local children’s retailer, Hugs for Kids but is going ahead only because of the incredible support of the local business community and the small army of volunteers that is steadily growing. Organisers hope that this will be the first year of many Belgrave Carnivals as they seek to show the rest of Australia the size of the community spirit that lives in the hills while supporting a cause that has touched many of us personally.
Each year the Good Friday Appeal brings together people from all parts of the community to raise much needed funds for equipment, research and education to support the work of The Royal Children’s Hospital. The strength of the Good Friday Appeal lies with the thousands of people who volunteer their time, expertise and creativity to organise fundraising activities throughout the year. Together they have raised more than $258 million for the benefit of the hospital since the Good Friday Appeal began in 1931. The Good Friday Appeal is a non-denominational, non-political organisation that exists solely to raise funds for the benefit of The Royal Children’s Hospital.
