Bosses to make a splash to help sick kids
City of Albany’s Andrew Sharpe and Nathan Watson will brave the cold and plummet into icy waters at the end of the month.
Triple M Albany’s popular Toss the Boss fundraiser is returning and will have employers plummeting into the icy water of Princess Royal Harbour on Friday, June 29.
As part of the Give Me 5 for Kids campaign, Toss the Boss, raises funds to help Perth Children’s Hospital treat seriously ill kids and help families travelling to Perth.
Triple M breakfast announcer Terry Siva said it was a great cause to get behind. “The Perth Children’s Hospital Regional Assistance Fund helps families from the Great Southern who have to travel to Perth for medical attention, so this fun fundraiser is a great way to support the cause,” he said.
“It’s a good chance for employers to have a bit of fun and get back at their boss.”
City of Albany chief executive Andrew Sharpe said it was a fantastic cause to get behind.
“It helps support many families in regional communities like Albany to be able to afford to access the specialist medical care and services they need for their children and with my own young children, I wanted to be able to do my part to raise some much-needed funds to help,” he said.
City of Albany communications and events manager Nathan Watson said he was happy to be a part of the fundraiser.
“Anything we can do to help families afford to access the medical support they need for their children is worthwhile and the Perth Children’s Hospital Regional Assistance Fund is making a world of difference to many regional families doing it tough, so I’m more than happy to do my bit for the cause,” he said.
