OBrien Real Estate Chelsea’s Generous Support for the Good Friday Appeal

In a heartening display of philanthropy and community spirit, OBrien Real Estate Chelsea demonstrated their unwavering commitment to supporting the Good Friday Appeal by pledging a substantial $10,000. The occasion, held at Platform 89 on Melbourne Skydeck atop the iconic Eureka Tower in Southbank, was a resounding success, raising a remarkable $119,379 for the Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH).

With this latest contribution from this year’s event, the total raised since its inception in 2018 surpasses an impressive $1.84 million. Such an achievement is a testament to the enduring commitment and passion of OBrien Real Estate Chelsea and its supporters towards making a tangible difference in the lives of those in need.

This year’s donation will contribute to funding the purchase of a new ultrasound machine to support the insertion of peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVCs) at the Royal Children’s Hospital. PIVCs, also known as cannulas or drips, play a crucial role in delivering life-saving medications and fluids to patients. With approximately 30,000 PIVCs inserted each year, it stands as the hospital’s most common invasive procedure. The Vascular Access Specialist Team (VAST) at RCH aims to improve expertise, reduce complications, enhance staff education, and adopt a patient-centered approach to PIVC insertion. This initiative aims to minimize pain, anxiety, and trauma for children undergoing this procedure, highlighting the hospital’s commitment to providing compassionate care.

The success of the Good Friday Appeal, which relies on the generosity of the whole community, underscores the significance of collective action in supporting vital healthcare initiatives. OBrien Real Estate Chelsea’s pledge, along with the contributions of supporters, underscores the power of community solidarity in making a tangible difference in the lives of children and families facing health challenges. The event’s success also owes much to the support of Jacquie Felgate and the Melbourne Skydeck, whose contributions were instrumental in making the event possible.

We were honoured to be involved in the climb for the kids events and thank our representatives Jarrod Bloomfield and Joshua Runatay for supporting such an incredible cause.
