Special day out for sick kids

IT WAS a very special day for a group of sick kids and their families who were able to create some magical memories outside of their hospital environment last week.

Organised by the Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Australia Zoo family experience gave 15 kids the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of our favourite native animals.

“We understand how crucial these moments of happiness are for our families and are pleased that we were able to provide a welcome distraction as well as bring a smile to their face,” Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO, Lyndsey Rice said.

The Children’s Hospital Foundation is the charity dedicated to raising funds for Queensland’s sickest kids and works with Queensland Children’s Hospital and state-wide with Children’s Health Qld.
