The Healing Power of Play

When Ella Mienert saw first-hand the effect that volunteers had on sick children in hospital, she knew she had to support them. 

It was at the Queensland Children’s Hospital where Ella, a Griffith University Nursing student, first observed the Radio Lollipop volunteers.

After eight months of volunteer work for Radio Lollipop, Ella is now increasing awareness of the Charity by participating in the Miss Diamond Pageant.

“The Pageant is not about what you look like, it’s about what you’re doing for your community, and that really appeals to me”, Ella expressed.

Ella has advanced to the final round and will represent Australia in the international finals at Parliament house in Brisbane in April!!

Well done Ella!

Medical studies really do prove that laughter is the best medicine! For example, after Radio Lollipop involvement there was an 82% reduction in pain medication.
