We give you a look backstage at Telethon with the Maurice Meade crew.
Did you dig deep for Telethon this year?
Maurice Meade have been supporting Telethon for over 34 years now and our team were once again thrilled to be part of this year’s record smashing event.
The 26 hour extravaganza raised nearly $17 million – breaking last year’s record by $3 million! The total raised is absolutely staggering, particularly considering the current economic climate. Us West Aussies really are an incredibly generous bunch!
This year we were privileged to spend time with the kind-hearted stars of Home & Away, Winners & Losers, Packed to the Rafters, Justice Crew and Reece Mastin to name a few. The highlight was undoubtedly seeing Molly Meldrum who joined the Telethon team once again this year despite the difficult year behind him. A true inspiration & incredible human being!
‘We love being at Telethon every year!‘, said Daniel, Maurice Meade Technical Director. ‘The fun, the spectacle, the lovely people and all the excitment is all topped off with the fact we are doing it for an amazing cause.‘
Many of our dedicated hairdressers & make-up artists devoted their weekends and their time to helping the stars look their best on stage: we take you behind the scenes to show you what we got up to.
If you’ve been following us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you would have seen some of the action backstage. If you missed it, we’ve put together a full gallery for you below as well as a behind-the-scenes tour with Brock Walter.
