Colourful creations: Verney Rd School student Myrcina Kelly is making "loom bands" to send to cancer patients at The Royal Children's Hospital.
The Verney Rd School senior student, 16, has been busy weaving ‘‘loom bands’’, which she plans to send to the Melbourne hospital as gifts for its cancer patients.
Myrcina has long been a patient at The Royal Children’s Hospital herself, visiting doctors on a regular basis for speech therapy.
‘‘All the doctors and nurses are really nice there,’’ she said.
‘‘They helped me a lot. ‘‘
Myrcina said she aimed to make 100 loom bands and so far had made 40.
‘‘Loom bands are really cool and they’re fun and easy to make,’’ she said.
‘‘I think when the kids get the loom bands they’ll feel excited and grateful and it will make them feel warm and happy inside.’’
Myrcina said she had prepared a letter in her literacy class to accompany the package of loom bands.
In the letter, she said she hoped they got better and were able to go home soon.
