Local raises close to $40,000 for Royal Children's Hospital

I want to congratulate my local Roxburgh Park resident Ellen Koutsodimitropoulos who has raised nearly $40,000 for the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal, 'Every Kid Counts' through her fundraising efforts.

For the past seven years, Ellen and her family have held fundraisers at the Greek Community of Broadmeadows and Districts hall two weeks before Easter raising much needed funds for the hospital as part of the Good Friday Appeal.

So far, the Koutsodimitropoulos family have raised $31,000 for the hospital, and already this year have surpassed $7,000.

Ellen, who volunteers at the children's hospital said she gets to see first-hand the difference these funds make.
