Wheels for Hope benefits from WA's generosity

Wheels for Hope was one of only 41 WA charities to receive some of the $20 Million raised from Perth's biggest community fund-raiser, Channel Seven's 2013 Telethon.

Seven West Media Chairman Kerry Stokes; Prime Minister Tony Abbott and special guests were in attendance when $20,701,272 was handed out at the beneficiaries function at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre on 31 March 2014.

 The funds received from Telethon will be used to assist with the running costs and maintenance of vehicles in the Wheels for Hope fleet – ensuring that seven WA families will continue to have the gift of mobility.

 This is the third year that Wheels for Hope has received funding from Telethon –2011 and 2012 Telethon funding was utilised to purchase second hand wheelchair hoist vans.
