$10,000 has been donated to Lion Hearts Learning. They are a South Australian registered children’s charity that provides a free playgroup/pre-school service to children impacted by Cancer, whether it be their own, a sibling’s, or a parent’s. Children undergoing oncological treatment have severely compromised immune systems and must be kept quite isolated.
Mainstream community playgroup, and preschool facilities in Adelaide can find it difficult to provide the hygienic environment required for oncology children due to their high volume of children, so they are denied the social, emotional and educational benefits of preschool. Most other “main stream” services available to oncology children are aimed at older age brackets, so we are filling a gap that is very important by providing social, emotional and educational (preparing for school) type learning.
