McGowan breaks out garish top for Loud Shirt Day tradition

He’s most comfortable in red, but Premier Mark McGowan embraced a much wider colour palette on Thursday as part of Loud Shirt Day in benefit of Telethon Speech and Hearing.

In what has become a long-running tradition, Labor MPs shed their power suits and jackets to don their most garish shirts while raising funds for a good cause.

Mr McGowan presented Telethon Speech and Hearing with $500 in donations direct from Labor caucus — but not before those gathered in the room heard speeches from two of the not-for-profit’s direct beneficiaries, brother and sister Kyden and Jemma Robertson.

The siblings — aged 9 and 7 respectively — were both born with profound hearing loss, a genetic condition inherited from their parents.
