Telethon 2016.. Take one action!



It's a huge weekend in Perth. Channel 7's Telethon 2016, 'the highest fund raising Telethon (per capita) in the world' kicked off yesterday with community events around the city and suburbs. I took these shots of a promo for Bendigo Bank Kids Carnival for Telethon a few weeks ago at Elizabeth Quay. The above shot was the end result of many..'take one, take two, take ten action' :) The coming together of so many characters culminating in a big hurrah at the end was fun to watch, even more fun was watching the many parents in the background trying to get their children to be super animated.. I thought it best to leave them out :)


It was an unexpected and colourful event on a bit of a dull day.. as at 11.30 pm last night they had reached a total of over 10 million dollars with the whole of Sunday to go.. very impressive Perthites, so proud of you! Hoping to get into the city today to visit a few of the Perth Heritage Days 2016 events.. Hope you are having a fab weekend, happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...

  1. Hmmm, I see Darth Vader, Iron Man, and I think Wolverine in that mix. A curious trio.

  4. As I work in a school I get involved in these events quite regularly - in fact I dread the day coming around! Respect to all those who raise such huge amounts.

  8. Great shots, Grace, and Kudos to the generosity of the Perthians (Perthites? Perthpeople?)

    I like to ride the coattails of other photographers and sneak my own photos, just like these.

  12. I never expected to see Tinkerbell and a Transformer together. Olivier has posted pictures of France's telethon, which is apparently based in Evry. It used to be a big deal in the US but is long gone.
