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 Treehouse Children’s Unit at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport. Over the year her visits will benefit around 500 children.
Caroline Stores, Play Specialist at Stepping Hill says: “Louby-Lou is fantastic at entertaining children of all ages and their parents. With her endless skills of magic tricks, balloon making, karaoke and jokes, she is great at adapting and including all children regardless of their abilities. We have also always had fantastic feedback. Her visits provide a fun and positive hospital experience to all the patients and parents on the ward.”
