Wishes for terminally ill kids

Hospital is a very lonely place for a child and for chronically and terminally ill children it can be a permanent reality.

The Starlight Foundation is a national organisation committed to brightening the lives of these children by granting them wishes and the Foundations Lismore Support Group are currently desperate for volunteers to donate a couple of hours three or four times a year during their fundraising activities.

The group is holding a public meeting on Wednesday, March 14 at 7pm Lismore Heights Bowling Club and implore anyone with a spare few hours up their sleeve to attend.

In the last two years the group, comprising just ten core members, have raised $17,000 and aims to raise $10,00 this year to go towards granting wishes, such as the recently funded trip to Tasmania for a Wollongbar girl and her family, and a young boys wish fulfilled to ride a KTM 50 Mini Adventure Bike.

Eight hours out of someones entire year is all we need to make a huge difference to these kids lives. Its not hard, said Anne Wall, Lismore Support Group Secretary.
