Last year’s Sydney Airport Community Christmas Giving Appeal raised more than $180,000 for Variety – the Children’s Charity to help Aussie kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.

The six-week charity campaign held in the lead up to Christmas received strong support from passengers, the public, the airport community, stakeholders and volunteers.

Particular thanks go to our corporate contributors Assetlink, Dick Smith and the Rotary clubs of Marrickville, Rockdale City and Botany Bay.

The funds raised will go towards vital equipment for children and families in need, including a customised 14-seater Variety Sunshine Coach with a wheelchair modification for The Hills School Northmead, Variety Scholarships, wheelchairs, specialised strollers, walking frames and wigs for children with alopecia.
