All Saints Wellingborough Mothers’ Union Hospital Visit

DSC03382

The members of All Saints Wellingborough Mothers’ Union have been collecting small toiletries for the use of children who find themselves in Kettering Hospital in an emergency.

This resulted in a very interesting visit to the Skylark Ward. We were given a tour of the many facilities that this new children’s ward has to offer. It included a sensory room, a playroom, a room for teenagers, besides all medical facilities in bright child friendly surroundings.

We gave them ten toilet bags containing essentials such as toothbrush, toothpaste, a flannel, shower gel, a comb, hairbrush etc.  enough for an overnight stay. These will be replaced when necessary. In fact a message was received in the evening of our visit that one had already helped a child.

A few teddies may also find their way there for brave children to take home.
