About Wings For Kids
"Wings for Kids" is a Not for Profit Incorporated Organisation comprised of local community members who volunteer their time and expertise to raise funds and awareness of the group.
“Wings” commenced in this area over 30 years ago as an auxiliary of the Crippled Children’s Association (CCA) of SA.
After many years of fundraising for special needs children throughout SA and here in Sunraysia, new legislation made it impossible for our local children to be assisted through the CCA of SA.
Therefore, a decision was made to form a completely autonomous group to cater for our local “special” kids, hence Champions for Children was formed. Champions for Children operated for years successfully until 1995 when because of confusion with another like named group it was decided to re-name ourselves once more and Wings for Kids Inc (Sunraysia Mallee) was born.
Wings for Kids Inc is listed and registered on the Charity Register and is regulated by the ACNC (Australian Charities & Not for Profit Commission.)

Local business houses and traders donate very generously and widely support our fundraisers.
