Have a fun time and help Telethon at the same time
Telethon has been going now for many years and it is one charity that many people in WA have, over time, given something to - whether it be a small or a large amount, all donations help to make Telethon our biggest money earner for such a worthy cause. Donations from Telethon financially support the medical and social welfare of children, while funding research into many children's diseases.
Here is what happens with the money raised by Telethon each year.
This year, VCM are holding a fundraising event called Rock Rattle and Roll for Telethon. It has the unique theme of celebrating and recognising all things vintage, and particularly to the era of rockabilly and rock and roll!
