Charity Partner - the Good
Friday Appeal for the Royal Children's Hospital
Like Yarra Trams, the Royal Children's Hospital is a community
institution on which the people of Melbourne depend. The Hospital
has looked after successive generations of Melburnians and the
Yarra Trams family chose to support the hospital so that it can
look after future generations too.
Since 2005, the Royal Children's Hospital has been the major
Charity Partner for Yarra Trams. Staff across our 13 locations all
stage fundraising events throughout the year with additional
contributions made by the company and customers.
Each year, Yarra Trams has continued as a Major Partner in the
annual Good Friday Appeal. As a part of the Good Friday
festivities, Jake out tramTRACKER dog helps entertain the kids and
families with monies raised going towards the appeal.
Yarra Trams provides a wrapped tram promoting the good works of
the Royal Children's Hospital and encourages the people of
Melbourne to get behind the Good Friday
Since the partnership was formed, Yarra Trams has raised more
than $600,000 for the appeal and has provided in excess of $2.8m of
in-kind promotion for the Royal Children's Hospital and its
