Our Lotteries brand The Lott proudly contributed $100,000 to Very Special Kids today to help the children’s charity rebuild its Melbourne hospice by 2023.

Each year, Very Special Kids supports about 850 Victorian families caring for children with life-threatening conditions with ongoing support, from diagnosis through to recovery and bereavement.

CEO Michael Wasley (pictured right, with VSK founder Sister Margaret Noone and two staff members) said the charity had spent more than three years researching how to build a world-class hospice.

“The new hospice will have state-of-the-art and best-practice clinical facilities to better support children of every age, size, nationality and functional capability,” he said.

“It will offer more specialised services for children as well as a semi-private space for adolescents to better respect their maturity and desire for independence. “There will also be a dedicated area to allow for greater privacy and space to support a family’s final wishes for their child.”

The Lott is proud to continue its partnership with Very Special Kids, having contributed $100,000 to the organisation last year.
