Telethon

The annual Channel 7 Telethon weekend has been held for over 50 years
with support from the community in fundraising for vital equipment and research into childhood disease.

We've had fun contributing over the years!

  1. 1981 Miss Maud's pastry chefs created a HUGE tiered cake for Telethon.  Trucks had to carry the massively heavy cake to the Channel 7 studio, where a crane was needed to reassemble the pieces.  THEN the cake was manoeuvred into the studio, where Miss Maud explained the cake would be cut into pieces and sold for 0.20c slice to raise money for Telethon!
