2017 CHARITY PARTNER  - redkite


Redkite is one of Australia’s leading national cancer charities with over 30 years’ experience in providing professional and essential support to children and young people living with cancer including their families.
In 2016 Redkite supported over 1040 people from NSW including seven families from the Southern Highlands.    Across the country the figure exceeds 3,700 individuals each year.      
Redkite receives no government funding and relies on donations from the community with amounts over $2 being tax deductible.

"The team at Redkite are very excited to be partnering with Tulip Time in 2017. The opportunity to introduce ourselves to the local community and the thousands of visitors who attend the festival will make a significant difference to the lives of children with cancer and their families.
The generosity of Tulip Time’s visitors will help ensure that Redkite can provide practical, must-have support to more kids and families who need it - support like information, counselling and financial assistance. When their lives are turned upside down emotionally and financially by cancer, we need to be here for them. 
  We’re thrilled to be part of an event that celebrates community and Tulip Time has such a strong legacy within the local region. We’re incredibly honoured by this partnership which will help Redkite reach even more Southern Highlands families who need our support.”
