A group of residents from the BaptistCare Aminya Centre's knitting group visited Westmead Children’s Hospital and presented a number of hand-made teddy bears to sick children this week.
The Aminya Centre residents, who have been working steadily for over a year knitting teddy bears for the patients undergoing treatment at the hospital’s oncology outpatient clinic, were very excited to present the bears to the awaiting kids.
Johanna Gillott, Aminya Centre’s Lifestyle Coordinator said, “Each of the residents was very moved by the bravery of these children and felt very proud that they were able to help them in some small way.”
The residents were also given a tour of the hospital and met some of the hospital’s “clown doctors”.
BaptistCare wishes to thank all the residents for their hard work and to Mangalika Amaratilika, Aminya Centre’s Recreational Activities Officer, for running this project.
