CHARITY OF THE MONTH – Alder Hey Children’s Charity

Our charity of the month for May is the Alder Hey Children’s Charity which was nominated by Emily Addison.

Handing over out cheque for £535 to Hayley Thomas, the charity’s head of corporate fundraising, Emily said: “I nominated Alder Hey because of the incredible work they have done in helping the daughter of my best friend Sarah.

Amazing

“Sarah’s daughter Grace was born with spina bifida and has been treated at Alder Hey for the past 12 years, undergoing two or three operations a year. The treatment she has received has been amazing and I saw this as my chance to give something back.

“My son is two and I couldn’t imagine him having to go through what Grace has had to put up with, but Alder Hey have been brilliant in the way they have treated her.”

Smiles

Our donation is set to bring even more smiles to Grace’s face and those of her fellow patients because it is going to be used to buy arts and crafts materials to be used throughout the hospital.
Said Hayley: “The charity helps fund a range of activities and projects which are designed to enhance and improve the lives of our amazing patients. This includes funding special projects such as play specialists and arts for health programmes as well as supporting research.

Specialists

“We have specialists on each ward to engage the children in all different kinds of arts and crafts and we’re always looking for fresh supplies of Play-Doh and paints and brushes which we use to make their stays with us as happy and interesting as we can.

“We raise the money and the hospital asks us for help with what they need. It could be a £1 million piece of equipment or, as in this case, a whole range of smaller items, but we couldn’t do any of it without the generosity of people like the staff of Gladstone Brookes – thank you all so much.”
