Chris McDermott Reveals Exactly How Tough Times Are For Little Heroes

Feb 13, 2020


Chris McDermott says the Little Heroes Foundation has less than $10,000 in the bank after donations dried up late last year and will close if things don’t turn around by 30 June.

Chris told FIVEaa Breakfast on Thursday:

“I don’t like to say this and it’s not really for public consumption but I’ll tell you because you asked the question: we wouldn’t have five figures in the bank.

“We don’t have overdrafts, we don’t have resources, we don’t have additional funds to tip into. It’s been like that since December… that would be a fine line for anybody but that’s how close it is for us.

“We’ve reduced staff. That’s what we do -- we ebb and flow over 24 years… we’re at four, a couple of full-timers and a couple of part-timers and for us that’s as thin as you can go without having no staff.”

The Little Heroes Foundation supports "seriously ill children". To help, visit the foundation's website here.
