Canning Times - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
