Raiders show support towards Channel 9 Gold Appeal

Canberra Raiders players Sia Soliola, Paul Roache, Elliott Whitehead and Jack Murchie were on hand at Westfield Belconnen on Friday to show their support for theĀ Chidren's Hospital Sydney Gold AppealĀ  which helps raise funds for the Sydney Children's Hospital to buy life-saving equipment, fund ground-breaking research and deliver vital services to young patients from across NSW.

Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation CEO Nicola Stokes was thrilled to be in Canberra alongside the Raiders.

"Being here today in Canberra is really important because we're visiting all the regional centres in NSW and the ACT. As well as looking after the children's health we like to look after their well-being so having the Canberra Raiders players here bring a burst of light to the kids here so it's great to see them out here showing their support."

Local Canberran Kylie Barry said it was fantastic to have the Raiders players out at Westfield Belconnen on their week off.

"It was great to see the guys out here supporting kids from the hospital was fantastic, my daughter Ella had brain surgery at the Sydney Children's hospital last year so for her to see players like Sia and Elliott really brings a smile to the kids' faces so it's fantastic to see."
