To assist pass the time and make hospital stays a little more entertaining, Cystic Fibrosis Victoria (CFV) is pleased to make available, to all members under the age of 15 years, one of our age and gender appropriate Boredom Buster Bags. The bags are filled with a range of treasures including nail polish for the budding diva and 3D dinosaur puzzles for the aspiring archaeologist. We have bags for toddlers and even bags for newborns.
CFV relies on family members to inform us about upcoming admissions to ensure the bags dropped off to the hospital. Please call Monica on 9686 1811 to arrange your Boredom Buster Bag. She would love to also catch up with you while you are in hospital.
CFV is indebted to Edrington Park Retirement Village, Berwick, Ladies Group which has been extremely busy sourcing contents and packing these bags for CFV. Not only have they approached many businesses for donations but have also raised funds to purchase items from a local warehouse and the knitting group has produce many teddies for inclusion in the bags.
“Our ladies certainly DO get lots of enjoyment & satisfaction in helping to alleviate some of the boredom for the children with CF who endure many hospital stays,” said Sandra Miller, Convenor of the Ladies Group.
