Teddy Bear Hospital

Volunteers from the Medical, Biomedical, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Nursing and Optometry schools don their hospital scrubs to raise funds for the Good Friday Appeal. Children and families are invited to bring along their favourite teddy or soft toy for mock-medical check-ups run by the students, where they interact and learn through fun activities such as taking their teddies through teddy X-rays, teddy ICU, teddy surgery, and teddy physiotherapy.
