The Teddy Bears Picnic - Oct 19 - Rosehill Gardens

If you are looking for a fun day out with the kids in Sydney, support the Children's Hospital at Westmead on October 19 by heading to Rosehill Gardens for the annual Teddy Bear's Picnic. Tickets are only $15 or $50 for a family of 4 (some transaction fees may apply) and are available through Ticketmaster. There will be so many great things to see and do from fun rides, face painting, jumping castles, art tables and a free concert by some of the kids favourite characters, including the Saturday Disney team. There will be a host of celebrities there signing autographs and lots of merchandise & showbags for the kids. A few years ago I volunteered for a little while at Radio Bedrock, which is the kids radio station in the Children's Hospital at Westmead and my time there was very rewarding. It was the first time I had seen what goes on behind the scenes in helping our sick children. Years later I had first hand experience at the hospital when Gigi was hospitalised there as a baby and it makes you realise how lucky we are to have such great medical facilities available to us. All the staff at the Children's Hospital do such a wonderful job so if you have nothing planned on that date, take the kids out for the day, all the while supporting this fantastic place.
