Pretty piggy bank in pink

A GIANT piggy bank weighing in at 700 kilograms rolled into the Latrobe Valley last week in a bid to raise $1 million for children with life-threatening conditions.

The annual Very Special Kids Piggy Bank Appeal kicked off in Morwell last week and will make its way across Gippsland.

Very Special Kids supports 41 families in Gippsland and more than 900 across Victoria, who are caring for children with life-threatening conditions.

To make a donation or purchase merchandise online, visit, visit a Commonwealth Bank or ALH Group venue, or catch up with a giant piggy bank when it rolls into town.

A calendar of piggy stops can be found at the Piggy Bank Appeal website.
