Broker McLardy McShane’s annual Reach Christmas Lunch raised almost $125,000 last week, bringing total funds raised for the charity to more than $1 million.

Reach helps about 40,000 Australian youths each year.

Organiser Rachel Sozzi told it was an “awesome” day, with 73 organisations pledging $1250 each, about $25,000 made in raffle tickets, plus further donations. Last year the lunch raised $105,000.

The event at Melbourne’s Docklands featured appearances from football figures Tim Watson and Neale Daniher, and comedian Jimeoin.
