Morale boost on the water
THIS lovely bunch of people isn't worried about breaking a sweat at the Jacaranda Dragon Boat Race, but they do expect to have a load of fun.
The team of elves, taking to the water under the name Wet Pads, are staff from Level 2 at the Grafton Base Hospital.
Wet Pads was formed by Tyrone Dungey in an effort to boost the morale of staff, after the death of several patients."We primarily deal with palliative care patents, and we've had some younger patients lose their battle (for life) recently, and that affects staff.
"To try and battle this emotional strain, we got together a team of 20 physios, clerical staff and family members so we can have a laugh and a bit of much-needed R and R in what appears to be a really fun atmosphere."
