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 eg pre and post medical procedures.
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 and sensory gardens, and provided musical and holistic therapies adding comfort, colour, music and laughter to our regular playtime activities.
Holidays are often difficult or expensive for families who have a child with chronic or long-term health conditions, but thanks to the support of our kind-hearted fundraisers, we’re able to transform holiday dreams into a reality.
Every year our charity provides funding to ensure that our hospital is able to enter a team into the British Transplant Games.
£312,000 raised by our supporters will transform the waiting room in our Eye Department.
Over £200,000 was raised to create bright and modern play spaces, suitable for kids of all ages, creating a safe, comfortable and relaxing environment, in three areas of the hospital, 24 hours a day.
