Today QPS officers and representatives from Stefan’s MASKS (Make a Sick Kid Smile) Foundation accompanied the Easter Bunny for the delivery of Easter eggs to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital.
The day started with Police Commissioner Ian Stewart, his 25 QPS helpers from Road Policing Command and the Easter Bunny gathering at Stefan’s Headquarters in South Brisbane. Together they travelled in a convoy to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital to visit the wards and deliver Easter treats.
Commissioner Stewart said that the Queensland Police Service, MASKS and the Children’s Hospital Foundation, the official charity of the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, share focus when it comes to helping sick kids.
“This event is a worthy distraction for the sick and injured children and you can see happiness on their faces,” Commissioner Stewart said.
“It is always a pleasure to see the big smiles on the kids’ faces when they see the Easter Bunny visit,”
“The bravery and determination of these kids is outstanding. Delivering the Easter eggs is a small way of showing them that we care about them dearly.”
The Queensland Police Service has been delivering Easter cheer to sick kids in hospital for more than 15 years.
Chocolates and toys donated by MASKS Foundation where gifted to the children at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, which is now the largest specialist children’s hospital in Queensland.
