Meet the man with the handpan! Lachie has been volunteering with The Stairwell Project for six years, an organisation dedicated to playing beautiful music in unexpected corners around #RBWH.

"It's a nice experience for patients and it's also so rewarding for us, we're used to playing at shows or concerts but it's really different sitting in the hospital and getting smiles and thank yous as people walk by," he said.

"Once I was playing in the oncology waiting room when a lady sat by me, closed her eyes and listened to my music.

"We sat there for ages and eventually she opened her eyes and told me she's been in constant pain but momentarily being swept away by the music she was able to forget that feeling for a bit."

Keeper of keys and grounds at Herston. 🧙‍♂️⚡ Resident carpenter and #Herston campus' official locksmith, Mark McGregor, has been taking care of the #RBWH carpentry and locksmithing needs for the last 10 years. 🔒

"It's been amazing to watch the campus go through so many infrastructural changes, some of the buildings I've worked in don't even exist anymore!" he said.

"I've worked on thousands of different types of doors, locks, drawers and lockers. I love being able to help our staff get what they need and back to what they were doing.

"It's a nice feeling being needed, but there is nothing like the feeling you get after successfully picking a lock and not needing to replace the whole mechanism!" 🗝
