Willetton resident celebrates birthday with toy donation
A BIG-HEARTED Willetton resident celebrated her 24th birthday by taking gifts to sick children in hospital.
Katie Hardwick and friend Gabby Sawyer visited Fiona Stanley Hospital’s Ward 3A recently to donate care packages filled with toys, colouring books and other fun activities.
The gifts were given to Miss Hardwick by friends and family in lieu of birthday presents.
Miss Hardwick said the care packages were suggested by her mum Nancy.
“It was lots of fun making each pack. Katie invited her friends around to help decorate and fill each gift bag; all the girls got a buzz from it,” Nancy Hardwick said.
Nurse unit manager Lynda Deacon accepted the donation on behalf of the patients.
“It’s these small acts of kindness that truly brighten up our patient’s day, especially if they’re having a tough day,” said she said.
“We are thankful for Katie’s kindness.”
