LOCAL mums and tots got behind the Royal Children’s Hospital at Hello Birdie on 23 March, raising much-needed money for its Good Friday appeal.
Nikki and Rohan Lindsay have owned Hello Birdie for six months and said it was great to support the appeal as a business.
“We donate to it every year but this is the first time we’ve supported it as a business,” she said.
“We’ve got three children and our market here is for people with kids – so it’s close to everybody’s hearts.”
The day featured plenty of activities for the youngsters, including a photo booth, face-painting, seed planting and a lucky dip.
The toddlers left painted handprints on the cafe’s back wall and gathered with glee as a fire truck from Ocean Grove Fire Brigade arrived.
The cafe also raffled three hampers, one from Woolworths Ocean Grove and two provided by the appeal.
Local businesses like LamiSaru, Mini Montage and Roaming Rainbows donated vouchers and services, while local artist Natalie Ward donated paintings.
