The 12 Days of Christmas – Day 6 – Badge Making Kit and Mega Blocks to Ward 9!

Welcome to Day 6 of the 12 Days of Christmas!

Today we have yet another double donation  – this time both to Ward 9 at the Great North Children’s Hospital!

Some children are on the ward long term, either recovering from surgery, or because of chronic or long term conditions that require treatment… this means lots of time stuck in the ward for children, when let’s face it, they would rather be well – out playing or at home with their games etc! We have provided a badge making kit (all kids love a badge don’t they?!) and some mega blocks! These, simply, are great distractions for the children, will keep them busy and also give the something to be proud of when they have created something!

However, these types of toys and games are great for helping children develop their motor skills too – which is something that can be overlooked when in hospital being treated for illness or injury.

We hope all the families on Ward 9 benefit from these donations!
