Last week Lauren of Year 8 was in the Northern Territory as the ambassador for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation to launch her new Teddy Bear campaign. Lauren has designed and funded Humpty Bears which will be given to parents in the Northern Territory to hold when their little newborn babies are transferred into the Humpty humidicrib interstate for life saving treatment.
During the week parliament was sitting and Lauren was invited into the Assembly by the Minister for Health Natasha Fyles where she was formally recognised and thanked by the government of the Northern Territory for her significant contribution to positive health outcomes for children across the Northern Territory over the last four years. Lauren also launched her Teddy Bear Care program which has involved her doing several radio interviews (alongside the charity patron Ray Martin) as well as attending a very special morning tea where Lauren got to meet many of the 23 children whose lives have been saved by the medical equipment Lauren has helped secure for the Northern Territory. Lauren also attended fundraising events whilst in the NT, including the Annual Great Humpty Darwin Ball.
Clancy Catholic College would like to congratulate Lauren on these outstanding achievements.
