A sweet way to contribute to The Royal Children's Hospital

Cadbury and Easter: nearly synonymous to some, and did you know that Cadbury is on the verge of breaking the one million dollar mark in much-needed donations to The Royal Children's Hospital's Good Friday Appeal? Now in their fourteenth year, this event has become a tradition and a highlight for many children and families, both with and without a history at the hospital.
Pack up your tents, camp chairs, picnic rugs, and footballs, because this event is about much more than just the hunt for chocolate!
The egg hunt has been very well organised in the past, and held inside a fenced area, with different age groups at different times.
Carnival Rides, a bouncy castle, a big slide, a swing slide, and other activities are sure to help your family burn off the sugar high after the egg hunt. Entry to rides is available for $25 for unlimited ride wristband, or $5 for one ride. Queues have been long in the past, but seemed to move quickly. The craft tent has been the only free activity set up in the past.
Cadbury has had eggs and bunny ears for sale in the past as well, with proceeds going to the Good Friday Appeal; buy a few pairs for your family, and you'll be hopping along the bunny trail with the Cadbury Easter Bunny himself, when he makes his live appearance at the picnic event.
