Seven-year-old lemonade entreprenuer Lochie is a star of the screen now, after presenting his fundraising total to the televised Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

Lochie and his mum Claire travelled into the city on Good Friday to present a cheque representing their total donations to the hospital, following Lochie’s successful lemonade stand fundraiser on Saturday 27 March,

The cheque included the donation total from Aspire Childcare Cranbourne West, who raised funds for the hospital too by holding a BBQ in conjunction with Lochie’s lemonade stand.

In total, Lochie donated $2014.65 to the hospital on Good Friday.

Claire said she was proud of her son, who she said “did well” on the day despite some pre-filming nerves.

She said they had a great day contributing to the cause.

Now, Lochie and Claire are planning for next year’s lemonade stand, with hopes of making the day even bigger and better.
