Help the Royal Children's Hospital by attending this event
This is a day for the children and is their day out for fun and activities!

Come on down to Kids Day Out! The Good Friday Appeal encourages Victorians of all ages to come along to the 2019 Kids Day Out supported by the City of Melbourne.

This is an annual event and is a great way to bring the whole family together for a day of fun, activities and entertainment, all while raising much-needed funds for The Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne.

Entry is free and you do not need to book or buy tickets. There are some activities that are ticketed and these as from $3 to $10, while other activities request a gold coin donation.

This event will be on Friday 19th April 2019 from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm. It will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), 1 Convention Centre Place, South Wharf.

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 at The Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne. You can check out more about the Good Friday Appeal at this link.

This appeal has proved very popular with thousands of people from all walks of life, who volunteer their time, expertise and creativity to organise the fundraising activities needed throughout the year.

Your support from this event gives children the best chance for a healthy start in life by making sure that the hospital continues to offer world-class care.
