We’re delighted to announce we are spreading smiles to children and teenagers under the care of our new NHS partner, Nottingham Children’s Hospital.
We run a weekly magic session with the patients there and patients also join in our regular sessions that we run for all of our NHS partner hospitals. Earlier in the summer we sent ice creams to the hospital for the children and teenagers to enjoy.
Jamie-Lee Phillipson, Play Specialist Team Lead, said, “Spread a Smile is an amazing charity, that constantly brings smiles to children’s faces. The work they have done to get all of their virtual sessions up and running has been incredible. It is such a great achievement seeing how they are still able to bring children of all ages so much joy through a screen. It has brought so much fun and laughter to the children and their families. The service they kindly provide for us is invaluable. Thank you for all the amazing work you do.”
Last week, the Play Team ran a Caribbean Party for the patients at the hospital. Spread a Smile entertained at the party with a virtual art session. We’ve loved seeing the amazing pineapple creations that the children made.
