The 2008 Lollipop Appeal held on February 29th, in the greater Wellington region was again a huge success. It has been an annual fixture for over ten years now and thanks to the brilliant organisational skills of the Wellington Friends of the Malaghan Institute there were over 300 volunteers out and about in the region shaking their buckets on our behalf.
An amazing $45,000 was raised which will be put to good use supporting our research groups. Thanks also to AMI, our wonderful principal supporter; Clemenger BBDO who developed our awesome new advertising; and Allens who supplied all the lollipops we gave out on the day - over 15,000 in fact!
