Fifteen girls from Royal High Junior School in Bath recently visited the Royal United Hospital to donate some of their handmade crafts to two of the wards.
First, the girls visited The Children’s Ward, where they met some of the nurses and looked around the Play Room, before presenting the bookmarks that they had made for the poorly patients.
Next, the girls visited the Dyson Centre for Neonatal Care, where they were told about how The Forever Friends Appeal had raised £3.1 million towards the build of the Centre, and how the building is designed to be therapeutic and holistic.
Here, the group presented the nurses with some knitted hats for the tiny babies that are looked after in the Centre.
Claudia Hickin, Senior Community Fundraiser at The Forever Friends Appeal said: ‘It is always lovely to have young people visit our hospital and take the time to make gifts for our patients.
“It is important for young people to see the difference that they can make at the local Hospital, and we are very grateful for their hard work.”
The Forever Friends Appeal are the primary fundraising charity at the Royal United Hospitals. If you’re interested in hearing more about what they do, contact Claudia Hickin on 01225 825825 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
