Liverpool's El Saddik family is just one of many families to benefit from a super charity event this weekend.
Mustafa El Saddik has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a muscle wasting condition.
He and his family have gotten invaluable support from the Muscular Dystrophy NSW – which is one of a selections of charities to receive a portion of the funds raised at the NSW Kids in Need’s World’s Largest Open House event.
The event is being held this Sunday from 10am to 2pm, and sees some of Sydney’s usually closed or hard to get to spaces open their doors.
Some of the venues include behind-the-scene tour sof the Australian Navy’s largest ship, Gosford Classic Car Museum – home to the largest collection of cars in the Southern Hemisphere, Sydney Airport Airfield Tour and the Sydney Cricket Grounds.
NSW Kids in Need chair Peter Debnam said over the past two years the event had attracted crowds of almost 100,000 and raised more than $320,000 for the charities.
“We’re anticipating larger crowd numbers than ever before due to the exciting and adventurous additions to this year’s program of events,” he said.
“Each year we’ve been blown away by the community generosity we’ve seen. We’re also so grateful to our volunteers, our charities and our partners.
“It’s a monumental effort to make the World’s Largest Open House happen, so for everybody to be so enthusiastic really demonstrates the sheer goodwill of those involved.”
