Our corporate fundraiser Taisie attended a garden party at Stepping Hill Hospital’s Tree House Children’s Unit this weekend to help celebrate 70 years of the NHS. There was a fantastic  turnout, with children being taught all kinds of useful health skills such as infection prevention, dental hygiene and how to carry out CPR. The children’s mental health team was there talking to people too.

The DJ kept the tunes pumping throughout the course of the afternoon, but the entertainment also included some amazingly talented children and teens getting up to perform songs and dance acts, as well as a Disney princess and a wonderful clown show from our very own Louby Lou. A huge thank you to all the wonderful staff for keeping everyone hydrated and fed with some really tasty treats!

Taisie says: “We loved witnessing the joy  the Tree House Garden that MedEquip4Kids  funded  brings to the children’s ward at Stepping Hill. It’s clearly a great asset, giving  children a sense of normality during their time in hospital, and let’s face it, when the weather is as lovely as this, who wouldn’t want to get outside!”

“The specialist treatment chairs are a new vital resource for the therapy team and nursing staff to be able to safely and comfortably sit extremely complex, dependant, critical care patients out of bed. The chairs allow us to begin the patient’s rehabilitation journey by providing appropriate postural support at the same time as pressure relief to allow the patient to build the muscle strength to hold themselves up against gravity. This allows them to begin to interact with their environment in a more normal way, enabling them to participate in meaningful activities such as meal times and activities of daily living.”
