The 12 Days of Christmas – Day 2 – Thermos Mugs to Paediatric A & E!

So, for day two we have another donation for you!! This time it is some thermos mugs for the Paediatric Accident and Emergency Department at the Great North Children’s Hospital!

Imagine the situation… your child has been involved in an accident, or has taken poorly and you have ended up in A & E with them…a very stressful experience as you wait to find out what is happening, what treatment is needed, will they need to stay in hospital, what is going to happen?! During such times it is difficult to find any reprieve, and our default go-to at a time like this is ‘have a cuppa’…

Unfortunately due to the nature of being on a hospital ward, drinking hot cups of tea or coffee is not safe, and this makes having your cuppa to calm our nerves and make you feel better often impossible in many wards. However, thanks to our fancy Team Evie thermos mugs this is no longer the case for parents on the A & E department at the RVI!

We are please to have provided enough for 2 mugs in each bay on the ward…

Again, none of these donations could happen without the support of you, our wonderful supporters! So, on behalf of everyone you continue to help us to support, thank you!
