Home Who we are News 13 July 2017 At the hospital Hospital heroes bring smiles to sick kids The Children’s Hospital Foundation brought the biggest heroes to our sick kids, in celebration of the BOQ Banking on our Kids Appeal. We welcomed Superman, Batman, Spiderman, The Flash, characters from Frozen and Toy Story as well as our home town heroes including firefighters, police officers and puppy handlers, doctors, nurses – and of course – our sick kids. Our sick kids enjoyed a heroic party, which began with our Hospital Heroes abseiling down the atrium of the hospital. Then the party really kicked off with Harlequin contortionists and magic from Drace Illusionist. Afterwards, we had visits from Queensland Police Service puppy handlers, Blazer and friends from QFES and a fantastic Happy Feet Fitness dance show. Even Batman loved our workshops, as he helped sick kids make sand wizard pictures, create beautiful arts and craft projects and clock making, make hero badges at our badge making workshop and gobble down some cupcakes and morning tea. Glitter tattoos and face painting helped us transform our sick kids and their families into their favourite super heroes, including Wonder Woman, Spiderman, the Flash and Superman. Thank you to BOQ, all of our suppliers, staff and volunteers who helped create a magical event today. Our suppliers included Izit Entertainment, Drace Illusionist, Crazy Candles, The Photo Booth Collective, The Prop House, Aerial Angels Academy, Chez Nous Corporate, Melissa K Facepainting, Party Faces Facepainting and Snatch Production. The Children’s Hospital Foundation supports sick kids and their families when they are in hospital by offering a range of programs and activities such as this Hospital Heroes party, that provide welcome distractions and entertainment for all.
