The Starlight Children’s Foundation brightens the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children, and their families, throughout Australia. Living with illness or injury can cause enormous strain in the lives of children and their families. The pain, loneliness and isolation that sick children feel dominates their lives, and they often miss out on normal experiences that healthy children take for granted.
So we decided to do something about it! Last Tuesday, 24th of June, our Sydney branch put a hold on work for the day and got down and dirty building a cubby house for a sick little girl. The cubby house was complete with sand pit, slide, rock climbing wall and swing – every outdoor activity a little girl could want! And for the rainy days… the inside was fitted out with a table and chairs as well as a tea set and pot plants – perfect for hosting tea parties!
We are proud of our achievements and so pleased that we’re able to provide support and bring so much happiness to this gorgeous little girl and her family.
