Help hospital charity raise Egg-stra this Spring to support the children it treats

Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead is launching a new initiative to help improve their children’s waiting and play areas and is asking for the local community to get involved.

Going to hospital can be daunting for children, so its charity – QVH Charity – is raising funds to create positive and happy spaces across the hospital for children to enjoy when they visit. The hospital treats children who have experienced burns or need reconstructive surgery, including specialist hand, jaw and eye surgery, as well as treating a number of other injuries and illnesses.

Paediatric ward matron Julie Baker says, “The role of the hospital environment is really important, particularly as a means of distraction for children. We want Queen Victoria Hospital to be somewhere they’re not frightened to go to. With the support of QVH Charity we want to make sure children get a positive first impression which will set the tone for their interaction with us. Improving these areas will make a huge difference.”

There are lots of ways people could get involved and raise money such as hosting a tea party, bake sale, craft day, sponsored sports challenge etc. There are plenty of ideas on
