Very Special Kids
ThreeSixty will be holding a fundraising event to help raise funds for the Melbourne based children’s charity: Very Special Kids (VSK).
VSK was founded in 1985 and has grown over the years with over 50 staff and more than 350 volunteers to assists more than 800 Victorian families who have a child with a life-threatening condition. Their support starts from the moment the diagnosis is received. Sadly, many of the children cared for, will not reach adulthood.
Each family is unique and VSK does it’s best to support them in every way possible. This includes counselling, advocacy, sibling support, bereavement support, networking & peer activities, trained family volunteers and specialist care at Very Special Kids Hospice.
The hospice provides round the clock specialist nursing care and is the only children’s hospice in Victoria. Families also have access to planned & emergency respite and end-of-life care.
Along with their main Melbourne office, VSK also provides support through smaller branches in Brunswick, Ballarat, Hastings, Shepparton, Torquay, Traralgon and Warrnambool.
The services VSK provides doesn’t come cheap, costing around $6.5 million annually. Donations, fundraising events & support, work place giving, leaving a bequest are just some ways you can help VSK provide their service for free-of-charge to families in need.
The fundraising event being held at ThreeSixty, was organised by a separate student group volunteering to help raise funds to contribute towards VSK. The event is being held from 6PM to 9PM on Saturday the 19th of September at our Caroline Springs venue and thanks to the efforts of all the wonderful volunteers, the event is now SOLD OUT! ThreeSixty would like to thank all the volunteers for letting us be apart of their fundraising event and also for all their hard and dedicated work to support VSK.
