Home Who we are News 13 December 2018 At the hospital Stefan brings gifts and smiles to Queensland Children’s Hospital Stefan Ackerie and his MASKS Foundation rolled up to the Queensland Children’s Hospital today with carloads of festive gifts and cheer for its annual toy run. The MASKS (Make A Sick Kid Smile) Foundation donates toys to the Children’s Hospital Foundation every Christmas to brighten the days of children and their families in hospital during the festive season. The colourful convoy, escorted by members of the Queensland Police Service (QPS) motorcycle officers, parked up outside the hospital before Stefan, Santa, QPS Assistant Police Officer Mike Keating and officers headed inside to deliver toys to every child in every ward. Children’s Hospital Foundation chief executive officer Rosie Simpson said the event was always highly anticipated at the Queensland Children’s Hospital. “Stefan and his team from MASKS visit the Queensland Children’s Hospital every year to deliver hundreds of toys and gifts, bringing laughter and smiles to patients and their families,” Ms Simpson said. “Christmas is a special time of the year, particularly for children. This visit provides those patients and siblings spending the holidays in hospital with a bit of fun, so they can focus on just being kids.” “On behalf of the Children’s Hospital Foundation, thank you to everyone from MASKS and the Queensland Police Service for making this annual event so special for the kids, their families and hospital staff,” Ms Simpson said. chevron_leftPrevious article Share Next articlechevron_right Latest News & Events COVID-19 Update from the Children’s Hospital Foundation March 26, 2020 Read more Grants shine spotlight on Queensland women making a difference in child health research March 16, 2020 Read more Help more kids survive open-heart surgery February 25, 2020 Read more Subscribe for the latest news There is always something interesting happening in our world.
