A number of activities and generous donations, including over 200 chocolate eggs, helped make Easter on the Children’s Ward a little bit more fun at the Royal United Hospital in Bath.
Over 150 eggs were donated by staff and customers from Bath Odd Down Sainsbury’s, along with a giant egg donated by Chelwood Bridge Rotary club and at least another 100 eggs donated by customers and staff from New Look and TK Maxx stores all over the region.
In addition, children on the ward were busy making Easter decorations with RUH play specialist Jo Powell and RUH Artist in Residence, Edwina Bridgeman, which were proudly put on display in the Children’s Ward playroom.
Jo said: “We are so grateful for all of these generous donations. Being in hospital can be a nerve- wracking experience for any child and staying in hospital over the holidays can be especially tough.
“This year we have so many Easter eggs we are even planning to do a couple of Easter egg hunts around the ward.
“Anything we can do like this really helps distract children from their illnesses and injuries and make their stay that bit brighter.”
