Scope 38 - Lollipop Day - 26 Feb 2009

17 April 2009, Supporting the Malaghan Institute

On Thursday the 26th of February, Wellington was inundated by lollipops for the Annual Lollipop Appeal.  Over 300 volunteers were out and about in the region with collection buckets and the people of Wellington responded generously.  $39,000.00 was raised and will go a long way toward supporting our research programmes in the months ahead.  Thank you to everyone who gave on the day and to all our volunteers, without whom the appeal would not be possible.  Thank you also to our sponsors: the ever generous AMI Insurance, Clemenger BBDO for the great advertising campaign and also Allens for generously donating the lollipops.
