A MURAL which will mark the entrance to the John Lindell Rehabilitation Unit at Bendigo hospital will be specifically designed to help sick children with their recovery.

A team of people will help create the mural, made possible by a donation from the Give Me Five for Kids foundation. 

Service coordinator Marie Wycisk said the mural, which will feature brightly coloured leaves, will help assist in the children's therapy and create a welcome space for them to come. 

"As it stands, the area is quite dull and not a bright environment but the refurbishment will allow them to come into a room which is bright and friendly," she said. 

"We have children who come in aged from 0 to 18 years old so we wanted something relevant to all ages that can be used on many different levels.

"Now they will feel welcomed into what has traditionally been an adult therapy service."
