This special piggy is going to market help for kids

A giant piggy, standing three metres tall and weighing in at 700 kilograms, will roll into Ballarat on its way across Victoria to raise $1 million for children with life-threatening conditions. The annual Very Special Kids Piggy Bank Appeal comes to town with community fundraising events and piggy merchandise at Bridge Mall and Blue Bell Hotel on Saturday. Very Special Kids supports 36 families in the Grampians region. The organisation also provides 24-hour nursing care at Victoria’s only children’s hospice.
