YOUNGSTERS in the Launceston General Hospital children's ward were thrilled to receive their own set of Lego on Thursday, generously donated by Brixhibition through the proceeds of the event.  

Over 35 sets were donated to the ward, with 19 children receiving their own set to take home after they are discharged from the hospital. 

Launceston Brixhibition coordinator Ken Draeger said support from the Launceston City Council had allowed him to double the amount of Lego kits provided this year. 

Katie Harwood said her daughter Ava was stoked to find out she was receiving the Lego.

“It’s very good for her hand eye coordination,” she said. 

LGH play therapist Tash Pursell said the donation is a valuable resource for the hospital’s playroom.
