Being in hospital can be distressing, frightening and boring for kids. For many years we have funded “Magic Medic” Louby-Lou to entertain children’s wards 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 raising funds for Louby-Lou to provide 12 visits (one a month) to the children’s unit at Royal Bolton Hospital.  This will benefit around 480 children a year.  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.”

“The new beds for parents have had such a positive impact on the wellbeing of our children knowing their parent or carer is close by. But also for the parent being able to sleep comfortably next to their child has made such a difference to how they have responded to staff during difficult times on the ward. The difference a good night’s sleep makes is priceless.”
