Clown doctors Fidget, Misschief, Curley, Buffle and Daydream visited children all across Suffolk this week spreading giggles, guffaws and squeals.
One parent was overwhelmed by the joy it brought them and simply said: "Best medicine in the world, thank you."
The Clown Round project by Suffolk Artlink visits Ipswich Hospital, as well as the EACH Treehouse Hospice.
