Sup­port­ing clown doc­tors char­ity event

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE Clown Doc­tors is a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion that treats sick kids in hos­pi­tal with a dif­fer­ent kind of medicine – fun and laugh­ter.

Comm­Bank branches across Aus­tralia will be rais­ing funds in the lead up to the Clown Doc­tors na­tional day of fundrais­ing, Smile Day, on April 1.

Do­na­tions to the Clown Doc­tors can be made at any Comm­Bank Bank branch through­out April or on­line at comm­bank.com.au/clown­doc­tors.

Deb­bie Neil­son, Childers Comm­Bank Branch man­ager, said the bank had been sup­port­ing the Clown Doc­tors for more than 17 years.

“Through our fundrais­ing day, we hope to help the Clown Doc­tors achieve their goal of con­duct­ing more Clown Rounds in hospi­tals,” Ms Neil­son said.

“We en­cour­age lo­cal res­i­dents to come into the branch, share some laughs and make a do­na­tion.”

Clown Doc­tors CEO Melinda Far­rell said be­ing in hos­pi­tal brought with it a range of emo­tions.

“We aim to share a dose of laugh­ter with kids to help them through this dif­fi­cult time,” she said.

“Laugh­ter is sci­en­tif­i­cally proven to have a pos­i­tive ben­e­fit on the im­mune sys­tem and re­duce stress and pain.

“We’d like to thank the Childers Comm­Bank branch and those in the lo­cal com­mu­nity for their con­tin­ued sup­port.

“Your gen­eros­ity will help put smiles on thou­sands of chil­dren’s faces.”
