Give Me 5 For Kids 2012
Every year the Mid North Coast's 2MCFM launches into a month-long fundraising campaign to assist the Children's Wards at the Macksville, Kempsey, Wauchope and Port Macquarie Hospitals.
100% of the money raised is used to purchase vital life-saving medical equipment to treat sick and injured children in our area. During June the 8th Annual GIVE ME 5 FOR KIDS Campaign will be calling upon the local community to donate their 5 cent pieces (or anything larger) to reach this year's target.
Over the past 7 years with the community's generosity we have managed to raise almost $200 000 which includes a record of just over $43 000 last year.
