Thanks to Lions Pride Holden Car Club, and sponsors Nostalgia Rodders, Online Hire, and Wholesale Suspension, who have come together to put a smile on the faces of families and children at Nepean Hospital Children’s Ward.
They’ve donated 40 ‘Super Tees’ that are specially designed to help treat little ones while they’re in hospital. The superhero themed tees have a cape that doubles as a bib and has openings at the shoulder down one side to help with dressings, tubes and changing. It is also a lot more exciting than a traditional hospital gown.
This isn’t the first time Lions Pride have donated, having visited the hospital earlier in the year to donate some of the Super Tees. They hope to return again in September with more supplies.
“The shirts are great. Particularly for our special needs kids who, when they’re quite sick and resistant to moving, are hard to dress, so they work really well,” says Kylie Harris, Children’s Ward Nurse Unit Manager.
Established in 2000 as a non-profit organisation, the Lions Pride Holden Car Club is a family-based group for Holden enthusiasts who are keen to help others and give back to the local community, while also enjoying social outings.
“We wanted to support a local hospital, and this was the obvious place to come. The shirts are a great concept and a great gift for the child to take home,” says Harry Elvin, Club Secretary.
