Transperth gives passengers a sweet surprise

Transperth passengers are in for a treat tomorrow (Wednesday March 20).

Wednesday is Transperth’s annual Uniform Free Day, when commuters have a chance to meet their favourite superhero or cartoon character when hopping on a bus or passing through a major train station.

On this day, drivers and staff dress up to help sick children in hospitals across the state.

PTA managing director Mark Burgess said the money raised from Uniform Free Day would help maintain and extend the Radio Lollipop service into WA hospitals.

“Radio Lollipop volunteers do a wonderful job of making a stay in hospital a little bit better for young WA patients,” he said.  

“We hope our passengers will get a laugh out of the costumes, dig deep and donate to Radio Lollipop.

 “Last year, we raised almost $100,000.

“With the help of our passengers, we hope to go that little bit further this year, and top the $100,000 milestone.”

He said there would be yellow Radio Lollipop collection tins on every bus and at major train stations so that passengers could donate their loose change.

Radio Lollipop supports and entertains children at Princess Margaret, Armadale, Fremantle, Murdoch, Joondalup, Rockingham and Kalgoorlie hospitals.

Transperth staff and passengers have supported Radio Lollipop for 17 years.

Transperth Uniform Free Day is Radio Lollipop’s main source of revenue, making it possible for volunteers to continue to provide care, comfort, play and entertainment  to sick children.
