On Friday, the 2nd of September 2016, Lions Lindsay, Petrea, Jess and Leonardo Di Lion (Lion Ray), made a very special Hear Me Roar! Project delivery to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital (Kate Hill Ward).
Our Lions met with the staff of the Kate Hill Ward, including the nurses and the Ward Coordinator. Our visit to the Ward was organised by the lovely Bronwyn Chant from Craniofacial Australia, who also attended with us. It is always great to meet and see the people our projects help and support.
Our Club has been very busy making cushions for patients and we were very excited to deliver fifty (50) to the hospital. We had a tour of the ward and met a couple of patients. We spent a bit of time with a beautiful little girl from overseas, who is here having craniofacial surgery. It was wonderful to see one of our cushions making her smile but it took her a while to warm up to our Lion Leo. Her Barbie doll was the first to try out her new cushion, as she was placed under the covers in the hospital bed on top of the purple and pink ballerina cushion. I must say, she did look comfortable.
Thank you to the staff of the Kate Hill Ward and to Craniofacial Australia for supporting our project, and also for organising this special delivery for us. We look forward to our Lion members and friends making many more cushions to help make these special patients (and their toys) smile and more comfortable.
