Appin Hall Children’s Foundation ‘Carnival for Kids’

Appin Hall Children's Foundation 'Carnival for Kids' participants. The Tasmania Police Charity Trust extended support to Appin Hall Children’s Foundation by donating $1,500 to assist with their ‘Carnival for Kids’ program.   There were three fun-filled events held in Ulverstone, Hobart and Launceston in April 2012, where the audience was treated to a diverse range of acts including Koko the Clown, acrobats, magicians and stilt walkers.  The audience were also treated to an appearance of ‘Teddy’ the popular Charity Trust mascot and labradoodle extraordinaire, owned by Sergeant Fiona Smith.  Fiona and ‘Teddy’ had a great time at ‘Carnival for Kids’ in Ulverstone, with ‘Teddy’ being swamped by adoring fans.  Also a hit with the Launceston audience were the Tasmania Police mascots ‘Special Constables Kate and Sam (pictured here with Constable Michelle Sly who also briefly took part in the performance).

These events raised funds to support seriously ill and disadvantaged children residing at the Appin Hall Children’s Foundation’s respite and healing centre, located near Cradle Mountain.  The Tasmania Police Charity Trust was pleased to be able to support these events which created a great deal of enjoyment to hundreds of children.
