All the fun of a carnival

Emily AceSouth Western Times

Go karts, celebrity appearances and rides for kids big and small are just a selection of the entertainment on offer at Bunbury Centrepoint Shopping Centre for Telethon Carnival Day on Sunday.

With show bags galore, auctions and entertainment from Top Jazz Ballet, there is something for everyone to enjoy while raising money for kids in need.

Hell’s Kitchen champion and former Home and Away star Debra Lawrance will make an appearance alongside House Rules judge Drew Heath at 1pm.

Visitors will have the chance to win a luxury limousine ride to pick up the guest stars from the airport in an auction held at 11am.

GWN7 personality Shauna Willis said this year’s event was especially significant as it was Telethon and GWN7’s 50th anniversaries.

“GWN7 has been proud to broadcast Telethon each and every of the 50 years and we know we will get a big crowd down here on Sunday because it is always lots of fun and a chance to see big celebrities in the flesh,” she said.

Mrs Willis said the South West had always been a great supporter of Telethon and hoped the region would again dig deep for the worthy cause.

“I think a lot of regional mums and dads have had experience in needing medical help for their own children and sometimes you need to go to the bigger facilities in Perth to get the attention you need.

“So join in the fun, have a cuddle with Doopa and get involved in the atmosphere.”
