C You’ve helped light up the lives of sick kids r
T’was weeks before Christmas and the hospital halls were bare
While the children were sleeping, Santa’s elves worked with care
The wards were transformed into magical sites
By nurses, supporters and doctors alike
The children awoke to a Christmas wonderland
And the foyer was Santa’s workshop - with the help of many hands
Thanks to Dashing for making this wonderland come true
For donating their time, staff and resources too
Ausgrid came in to light up our tree
And all in the Hospital smiled with glee
The main entrance turned into a fairyland of fun
With arts, crafts and presents, there was something for everyone.
Thanks to Westfield Eastgardens, the kids in Hospital saw Santa to make their Christmas wish
Thanks to Arab Bank, Krinskys and George Khouzame, families enjoyed a festive dish
More than 65 houses joined the Lights for Kids campaign
With supporters from Woongarrah to Mosman, Dubbo to Emu Plains
Over $979,000 and still counting was raised
Your generosity and kindness really amazed
We thank you our supporters for making Christmas a brighter time
You’ve help make this a truly magical rhyme.
Messages of hope
