Savvy young holidaymakers are making the most of their creative skills to raise money for an important cause.

The group of south-west friends, who camp together with their families at Warrnambool each summer, have been offering nail-painting, hand-made rainbow bands, make-up and face-painting in exchange for donations to the Royal Children’s Hospital.

One of the group, Mason Farley, said the cause was very close to home.

“My brother William has been in the Royal Children’s Hospital getting a heart transplant,” he said.

The group set up shop near the entrance to Shipwreck Bay Holiday Park, raising more than $100 in one day.

“We walked around with a tin and collected donations as well,” group member Maggie Bath said.The youngsters have been earningcash using their craft and beauty skills for a number of years.

“But this is the first time we’ve donated it to the hospital,” Maggie said. “We normally just share it out between us.”
