AJAQA revisit the Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick

The last time Tracey Ajaqa visited the Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick it was as a patient.

However, last week the girls from local band, AJAQA were visiting to bring a bit of musical cheer to patients at the Hospital.

Touring the Adolescent ward on Friday, 16 November Erica, Tracey, Catherine and Mary took time out to sign autographs and pose for photographs.

Tracey was treated as a young child, and commented how good it felt to put something back into the Hospital.

Along the way the girls met patient, Claire Murray. Thirteen year old Claire and her visiting cousin (also pictured) had a great time with AJAQA, discussing the band's upcoming tour with Destiny's Child and trip to China.

Claire makes several trips a year to the Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick to have her Cystic Fibrosis treated and monitored. Special visitors can really brighten up the day - particularly when so long is spent away from home.

AJAQA concluded their visit with a performance for patients and families - including their debut single 'Back 2 U'.
