We managed to provide a big ‘Playhouse’ just outside the ward at St Peter's and in previous years we have supplied them with a number of ipads as well as toys and games and 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 and 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"
Aileen McLeisch - Chairman, St Peter's Hospital
