Being in hospital can be distressing, frightening and boring for kids. For many years we have funded “Magic Medic” Louby-Lou to entertain children in hospital with her immersive, colourful and vibrant clown show, performing magic tricks and getting kids singing along to popular songs. This distracts them from their treatment and helps to cheer them up. Reducing their stress and anxiety can make a real difference to the speed of their recovery.

This year we are again raising funds for Louby Lou to provide 12 monthly visits to the children’s unit at Royal Bolton Hospital.  The unit provides planned and emergency care to children and young people 0-18 with medical and surgical needs. The senior health play specialist at Royal Bolton says: “Louby Lou has a history of visiting Bolton to provide health and wellbeing relief to both children, families and staff alike. The play team consider her a huge benefit to the children and allows time for laughter and conversation during a potentially difficult and stressful admission. Louby Lou allows for normality, socialising and in turn brings joy and respite from hospital treatments and procedures.”

“During winter months our admissions of children with respiratory conditions increase, so these saturation monitors are vital to us being able to safely monitor children. They will allow us to monitor more children both continuously through their stay with us and at intermittent times during their visit. Staff will find the additional units make their jobs easier.”
