One hundred 'Lil Fairy Doors' were recently donated to patients at the Westmead Childrens Hospital to help bring some magic into the lives of sick children.

Two adult fairies, Fairy Cup Cake and Fairy Rosa visited a number of children throughout the hospital and spent time talking to and playing with the children. Four-year-olds Zara Buric and Sofia Donnay were both noticeably excited at the fairies' visit. 

Westmead Childrens hospital said it was a fantastic event that helped to put a smile on the children's faces.

The initiative was organised by Lil Fairy Doors founder Sally Copus with the help of the children's hospital.

"As a cancer survivor myself, I know what a huge impact being sick can have on your life," Ms Copus said.

"Sitting in those hospital rooms, feeling as horrible as I did myself, it made me think about all the little people going through the same thing."

The doors will be distributed between Westmead, Randwick and Bear Cottage, with the fairies to also visit children in those facilities to also help lift their spirits.
