As part of its annual expenditure, The Guild of Friends provides financial support to the Pod Charitable Trust. Pod provides entertainment for children in hospital and this year the Guild of Friends have funded 12 entertainment visits to help cheer up lots of children. The shows are appreciated by children, parents and staff alike and they bring fun and laughter into the Hospital at every visit.
“An excellent escape from being on the ward, my son loved every minute of it. It is wonderful for children who are less mobile to be able to fully use the play room in this way; it’s a great escape and amazing to see a smile on their faces and hear their laughter” Chris, Father of Ethan.
“Having spent some time in hospital with my son Jack, we noticed a flyer advertising an entertainer in BCH. My son had been quite upset and I thought I would take him to watch the show. It was just what the doctor ordered for Jack, he loved every minute of it. Fantastic use of fun in a sometimes sad situation, I fully support it. It was great for the kids and adults, the kids laughed so much. Well done and thank you, it has put a big smile on my boys face” Mr Geraghty, Father of Jack
