In December, The Guild of Friends purchased £480 worth of art and craft supplies for the play department in the hospital. We were able to supply plenty of glitter, paint, crayons, glue and sparkle for the children to have fun in the play department making lots of Christmas decorations. A small way of helping to create some happier memories and keeping the children busy with Christmas craft activities during often difficult times in the hospital.
We support the hospital play department throughout the year. The Play department does a wonderful job entertaining both the patients and their siblings through a myriad of creative and educational activities as well as simply providing a haven of fun. This department depends entirely on voluntary funding for its equipment from paint and crayons to outdoor play equipment.
