All smiles at Stepping Hill
MedEquip4Kids were delighted to visit Stepping Hill Hospital this week. The visit marked the conclusion to more than a year of fundraising by the charity, and charity staff, trustees and supporters were shown the results of all their hard work. The charity provided toys, distraction items and diagnostic equipment such as ophthalmoscopes, auroscopes and thermometers to make sure children get the best possible care in an emergency.
Paula Bennett, Nurse Consultant said: “We’re so grateful for the help and support from MedEquip4Kids. The extra items they supplied really make a difference to the experience children have when they are brought to hospital in an emergency.”
Charity donors met young patient Eleanor, who immediately recognised the charity after taking part in a Walk4Kids to raise funds for MedEquip4Kids at her school, Norris Road Primary. Her mum said: “It’s great that the money Eleanor raised has been used here.”
Charity Director Ghazala Baig said: “We’re so grateful to charitable trusts, companies and schools in the local area who supported this project, as well as to the children at Brabyns Preparatory School in Marple who raised funds through a sponsored swim, shoe cleaning, coffee and cake mornings, collections at carol concerts and lots more. It’s so good to see the results of all their hard work.”
