This great news story just came to us. Five-year-old Carter Thompson, an ELKP student at St. Mark Catholic Elementary School, asked his friends and family not to give him any gifts this year for his birthday, but wanted the money to donate to Mac Kids instead. Here he is making his cheque presentation to Parker Neale, Development Officer at the hospital’s Foundation, and with his Mum Jennifer and eight-year-old brother, Cole. Find out more about Carter’s story in our upcoming issue of Showcase Magazine, which will roll off the presses in June.
