Telethon is back

The countdown to the 2018 Channel Nine Telethon is on!

Now in its fifth year, the Channel Nine Telethon is a statewide appeal harnessing the generous spirit of Queenslanders towards a very special cause – our children.

In 2017, the Channel Nine Telethon raised over $12.2 million dollars for the Children’s Hospital Foundation which was an amazing effort to support sick kids and their families across the state.

This year we’re looking forward to building on this level of support to make an even bigger difference to sick kids and their families.

An evening with the stars

The Channel Nine Telethon will be broadcast on Saturday 17 November from 7pm, hosted by Nine personalities Melissa Downes and Andrew Lofthouse as well as numerous sporting stars and celebrities who will be generously supporting the event on and before the night.
