Through the charity row and also the Christmas Pantomime, the Tavern regulars and friends have raised over £12,000.00 which has enabled us to provide the children’s ward at St. Peter’s Hospital with things that might help make any child’s stay a bit easier.
Last year for instance, we managed to provide a big ‘Playhouse’ just outside the ward and in previous years we have supplied them with a number of ipads as well as toys ang games.
The ward have always been very appreciative of our efforts.
"On behalf of the Trust, I would like to thank you all for your support throughout the years. Thanks to your hard work, patients on Oak & Ash Wards have been able to enjoy a variety of activities while staying in hospital. The ipads are so popular with the older children, while the younger ones spend hours playing in the playroom. The Chill Out House in the Paediatric garden provides a shelter for the adolescents anf some quiet time away from the buzz of the ward.
The children really benefit from these activities. It is difficult to imagine how we could have done this without your support and kindness"
