Ella Loftus

Age: 10

Ella is an active young girl who loves all kind of sports and swims competitively, as well as playing netball, cycling and running and basically engaging in any kind of action!  When not participating in sport, Ella especially loves spending time with her family and friends and her dog Zeus.   Both Ella and her younger sister, are patients at Birmingham Children’s Hospital so we have been regular visitors for a number of years.  A warm welcome always greets us, with all staff treating the children with the greatest care and respect.  Ella is extremely kind and sensitive and the first to recognise and help where support is needed, whether this be at school, with her family members or the general public.   She is a keen fundraiser, having raised over £700 on a 33mile cycle for Sports Relief, as well as supporting our local Down Syndrome Support Group and Food Banks .  A visit to the Children’s Hospital always serves as a reminder that there are children with far greater needs than her own and on our last visit, Ella wanted to enter the Christmas card colouring competition in an attempt to support the Hospital’s own Fundraising initiative, recognising the amazing service that BCH provides to so many.
