Recently we have had time thinking about the children who have to spend much of their time in Princess Margaret Hospital. In a small effort to brighten up their day, we made the children a special book and sang some songs in a little concert for them, we had a great time at Radio Lollipop and visiting the children. We also created a multicultural cook book to sell and donated all of the funds to PMH.
The children had a ball and was a great way to highlight our focus on the community around us.
