Even the sickest children need to feel comfortable and safe, and to have a chance to play and learn. This can have a huge impact on their successful recovery, building confidence, developing creativity, addressing physical, social and emotional issues as well as providing a welcome distraction for children during an anxious and often scary time.
Thanks to your support we have funded improvements to the hospital environment so that we can create the best possible experience during what can be a difficult time. We have developed children’s playrooms, family areas, outdoor play areas, sensory gardens, and provided musical and holistic therapies adding comfort, colour, music and laughter to our regular playtime activities.
£312,000 raised by our supporters will transform the waiting room in our Eye Department.
