Surprise visit for young patient from Townsville Fire players
One of the young patients at Townsville Hospital and Health Service, Bethany, had a surprise visit from JCU Townsville Fire basketball players with a special present in tow.
Our ambassador, Steph Reid, and her teammate Lara McSpadden, made a special trip to give Bethany a shirt she was promised the last time Steph visited the hospital.
After a quick reunion, Steph and Bethany became fast friends again, playing in the children's ward until it was time for the players to return to their training.
Good luck to the Fire tonight in the finals! The whole of North Queensland is behind you. You are all amazing locals!
