Who we support

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 promotes the good works of the Royal Children's Hospital and encourages the people of Melbourne to get behind the Good Friday Appeal.

Since the partnership was formed, Yarra Trams has raised more than $700,000 for the appeal and has provided in excess of $3m of in-kind promotion for the Royal Children's Hospital and its fundraising activities.
