Lauren from popular children’s group Hi-5 bounded through the archway of balloons of the Radio Lollipop Studio to be greeted by many smiling faces on Monday 16 May 2011. The children completed Hi-5 crafts, played games and Lauren spent time chatting with each child.
Purplena the Face Painting Fairy from Dreamworld brightened up the ward by painting beautiful designs on many faces. Patients, siblings, Radio Lollipop Volunteers and even some of the nurses! There were butterflies, flowers, spidermen, Ben 10 characters and many other amazing designs.
Later Lauren and Purplena went for a walk around the wards to visit the children who were unable to make it down to the studio. Lauren chatted to the children and their families and autographed Hi-5 gear for them. Purplena painted the children’s faces and sprinkled special ‘get well fairy dust’ to help them feel much better. Every child was left smiling from ear to ear after their special visit from Lauren and Purplena.
A big thank you to Lauren for taking time out of your busy Hi-5 schedule to come and spend time with the children at Gold Coast Hospital and put so many smiles on faces. We hope you’ll come back and visit us again soon.
