Captain lights up Lismore Base children’s ward
CAPTAIN Starlight is putting a smile on the faces of sick local children at Lismore Base Hospital today.
It's Captain Starlight's first visit to Lismore this year, thanks to the Starlight Children's Foundation, supported in this instance by the Greater Building Society Lismore Branch through their Greater Charitable Foundation.
Starlight Children's Foundation CEO, Louise Baxter, said that thanks to funding from the Greater Charitable Foundation, Captain Starlight is now able to regularly visit Lismore Base Hospital, five other regional NSW Hospitals, and three Gold Coast hospitals.
"Captain Starlight delivers an important therapy program that helps kids to forget about their illness and to have some fun for a time," Ms Baxter said.
Captain Starlight and representatives from the Greater Building Society Lismore branch will be down at Lismore Base Hospital today.
