All the news that are relevant for our small community
In 2015 Dr Klown progressed on all major fronts. The efforts of the previous year 2014 to increase awareness paid off in the number of volunteers who effectively joined the Association, the support of the general public as well as from groups, clubs and companies, the attention we got in the media. It was a successful year. One concern remains: to find a proper way to plan our services in such a way that we can fulfil our major goal, to visit Every Child, Every Week with our volunteers, most of whom have a full time job. We only missed a few weeks, but we regret every one of them.
The major goal for 2016 is the strengthening of the bond between the volunteers through further professional development and team building activities.

In December 11 new Klown Doctors were awarded their Certificate after a whole year of intensive training in artistic skills and specialised hospital clown skills. We congratulate and welcome them in our troupe: Dr Big, Dr Bling, Dr Brushes, Dr Do-Re-Mi, Dr Freckles, Dr Gerfex, Dr Heidi, Dr Pixie, Dr Tick Tock, Dr What? and Dr Wiggle. Here’s a picture at the end of their Hospital Clowning weekend seminar:
They will continue their training on-the-job in the wards under the guidance of our experienced Klown Doctors, until they feel comfortable and got “the knack of it”.
Many private and Company groups supported Dr Klown by participating in the NoseOn! campaign, launched by Dr Klown early 2015. Have a look at our facebook page to see their funny pictures. Says Angelica X.: “We had a lot of fun discussing how we would picture our group with the red noses on! It was just hilarious!”
Here’s a picture of a group of MaltaPost, who packed, labeled and delivered our noses all around Malta and Gozo, with their NoseOn!
The campaign is still on – if you want to join in???
After the success of the special Dr Klown key chain last year, Playmobil employees created a girl friend for our boy-clown and produced a limited edition of cute girl clowns, which is in high demand!
