AGED care residents in Edgewater will be taking part in the annual Red Nose Day fundraiser this Friday.

The Mercy Health residents will be wearing red clothes as well as red noses on June 26 to support the SIDS and Kids event

Service manager Janelle McFarlane said residents had taken it upon themselves to roll up their sleeves and also organise a fundraising morning tea to raise money for the not-for-profit organisation.

“Our residents were extremely keen to get involved in this year’s Red Nose Day fundraiser and they don’t need too much persuasion to indulge in a little silliness for a serious cause,” she said.

Funds raised on Red Nose Day help save the lives of thousands of babies.
