Fun At The Hospital
As a charity, it’s important to us that while supporting the big things that improve medical outcomes, we also remember the children and families at the centre of it all. During 2019 we launched two new activities created to help make the hospital experience less stressful and more child focused, providing a degree of normality, holistic support and a sprinkling of fun in to their everyday lives.
Thankfully, many children don’t stay in hospital for long but there are those who spend weeks or even months here. Hospital days can be long ones, especially when you’re away from friends and extended family, and there isn’t a great deal to look forward to while you’re here. So we’ve set up the Sparkle Fund, which allows us to arrange or plan nice little things for some of the longer term patients or those who are in hospital on a special occasion. Again, due to the current situation, we’re doing whatever we can to support those in the Children’s Hospital at this time.
Some of the lovely things we’ve been able to arrange include Zaegar’s Harry Potter inspired 13th Birthday, little Laila’s first ever visit to Santa and Muhumad’s 2nd Birthday.
