Thwaite and Suman help raise $3.8 million for The Children’s Hospital Westmead

Michael Thwaite and Nicholas Suman headed to The Children's Hospital at Westmead on Friday afternoon to take part in the annual Radiothon and were part of the team that raised an incredible $3,869,640.

This year, Radiothon was a 24-hour all-or-nothing appeal with all funds raised going directly to The Children's Hospital in Westmead to purchase lifesaving equipment, conduct research into childhood disease and continue the delivery of vital services to patients and families. 

SmoothFM's on-air coverage was supported by 7 News Sydney, and included a day filled with entertainment at the hospital and stories shared by the patients, staff and volunteers.

For patients unable to leave their beds, they were treated to one-on-one visits by Michael Thwaite and Nicholas Suman who between calls were visiting sick kids. 

"We are overwhelmed with the generosity and the support of this year's appeal," said Gilly Paxton, Director of Community Relations and Marketing at The Children's Hospital at Westmead. 

"With this kind of result, we are able to give more support to departments who need it most. 

"It enables staff to perform state of the art procedures by giving them access to improved technology, and, it provides patients and families a level of support they wouldn't otherwise receive."
