THE Bundaberg Health Services Foundation has helped a local leading motorsport champ give something back to those sick on the children's ward.

During the past 12 months, local Bundaberg Motorsport Champion Kel Treseder has been competing across most states of Australia.

Next month Kel will lead the charge to New Zealand, competing in the final round of the Australian Aussie Race Car series and then the opening round of the New Zealand series.

Kel will be flying the Bundaberg flag high and proud with the support of TEAM NAVY.

"This partnership has enabled me to be leading the Rookie Championship and currently holding down third in the overall series,'' Kel said.

The TEAM NAVY driver has won two of the four rounds Phillip Island Victoria and Ipswich in Queensland.

With this success comes great exposure to not only Kel but to the TEAM NAVY brand and Kel wanted to give something back to the kids ward of Bundaberg hospital.

TEAM NAVY heard of the plan and wanted to donate five large soft Navy Bears as a small help to kids not feeling the best during their stay.

TEAM NAVY team manager Robin Grundon said, "These Navy Bears a symbol of STRENGTH, COURAGE and HOPE. We hope that these TEAM NAVY bears will support the kids ward for many years to come."
