Thanks to Australian Government funding we were recently able to celebrate and showcase our partnership with Starlight Children’s Foundation which has been running so successfully since 2015.

At our partnership breakfast at the Perth Pan Pacific Hotel on 28 February friends, supporters and colleagues were able to enjoy our new video showcasing our work in regional and remote communities. The video was filmed on location in the Pilbara in November 2016 and shows the Earbus Clinical Team working alongside Captain Starlight to treat Aboriginal children with ear disease. CEO Paul Higginbotham and Starlight Hospitals Program Manager Meg Strickland spoke about the importance of the Starlight-Earbus collaboration and how both organisations see a bright future for the partnership.

Starlight Captains accompany the Earbus Clinical Team on 12 regional visits a year dividing their time between the Goldfields and Pilbara regions of WA.
