Careflight Bears To Cheer Up Sick Kids

A big box full of Careflight Bears has arrived at the Toowoomba Hospital, with the aim to cheer-up sick children.

Volunteers for Careflight Toowoomba, Diana Ralph & Colleen Fett, arrived at the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation just recently to spread the cheer & provide lovely, cuddly Careflight Bears for the children in hospital.

Hospital Foundation CEO Peter Rookas was delighted to receive the bears for the hospital’s Children’s Ward and Special Care Nursery. “This is a valuable donation by our good friends from Careflight. We can provide the bears to kids who are traumatised or in a need of a pick-me-up and also for the parents of premature babies that have to be airlifted off to Brisbane.”

Mr. Rookas said the donation continues the wonderful association between the Foundation and Careflight. The Foundation manages the car park area where the Careflight helicopter lands at the Toowoomba Hospital & also puts out the ‘welcome mat’ for the crew with food & refreshments.
