Laughter is the best medicine

ACTON_PMH-238Having fun was the goal when ACTON hosted a special event in partnership with the PMH Foundation last month.  The ACTON Fun Cats event saw 14 children who have been cared for at the Princess Margaret Hospital and their families treated to an afternoon on the Swan River sailing catamarans.

All of the young sailors were given a quick lesson before partnering with ACTON representatives for the main event, a fun race on the river. The mild conditions proved challenging and it became a spirited race for the shore, with some having no choice but to paddle or be towed in!

Food and entertainment followed and PMH’s Stitches the Bear was a very popular special guest.

ACTON CEO Travis Coleman said it was a fantastic afternoon.

“ACTON have a long association with the PMH Foundation, supporting their events and assisting with fundraising, and we wanted to do something a little different, something that would bring some joy to some very deserving children and their families.

“We all had a wonderful time and are looking forward to another event with the PMH Foundation later in the year.”
