Fashions on the Footy Field-CMC supports Very Special Kids

CMC staff supported charity partner Very Special Kids (VSK) at its annual Footy Fever Debate this morning held at the MCG.

A key fundraising event for VSK, this years’ Footy Fever Debate saw Brian Taylor, Lawrence Mooney, Cameron Ling and Tom Browne engage in a fun and fiery debate over fashion on the footy field – were the 80s or 90s better?

Mullets and moustaches went head to head with arm tattoos and man buns with the audience left in fits of laughter.

The goal of the morning was for Very Special Kids to raise more than $200,000 for children with life threatening conditions.

Very Special Kids, is a unique organisation that supports families throughout their experience of caring for children with life-threatening conditions, from diagnosis through to recovery or bereavement.

The services are offered free of charge by a team of professional family support workers and hospice staff, who have backgrounds in social work, psychology, family therapy and nursing. These staff are supported by trained family volunteers.

The organisation has operated Very Special Kids House since 1996, Australia’s first and Victoria’s only children’s hospice, providing planned and emergency respite and end-of-life care.
