The Starlight Children’s Foundation touched down at Manning Hospital on Wednesday, bringing smiles to the faces of ill children. 

One of the visiting Captain Starlights said the visit turned pain, fear and stress into joy, fun and laughter.

"We’ve had so much fun hanging out with these sick children and just trying to make their day a little more brighter and a bit more fun.

"We've got some face painting, playing restaurant and a squiggle competition.”

Since 2012, the Greater Charitable Foundation has provided the Starlight Foundation with more than $680,000 to visit Taree and other regional hospitals in the State.

"We're really happy to have the Greater Bank on board who support us to do all of this amazing work in these hospitals, especially in the regional areas where we can come and visit which is great,” Captain Starlight said.
