First Drop of Art Packs

1024 768 Suzanne Brennan

We continued with our deliveries of art and boredom-busting packs earlier this week, delivering 200 packs to patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital and 50 packs to out-patients in radiotherapy at University College Hospital. Filled with items including activity books, pens, stickers, puzzles and more, as well as some sweet treats, each specially created pack will help to spread a much needed smile to a child who is currently in hospital.

Whilst we’re all feeling the effects of the COVID-19 lockdown, children in hospital are feeling increasingly isolated – they can currently only have one parent or carer with them in hospital, can’t see their siblings, and for infection control purposes, hospitals are having to restrict the number of toys available – they can all only be used by a single patient.

We would like to say a huge thanks to our partners who helped us to create these packs, including Arcturus  Books, Alligator Products, Cheatwell Games, Peachy Stickers, Polybags, Royal Talens Foundation, Shanly Foundation and Spin Master.
