London Marathon Challenge to create a sensory room for children at Hull Eye Hospital
Hospital Chief Finance Officer, Lee Bond, is about to embark on the challenge of a lifetime as he bids to run the London marathon and raise £10,000 for WISHH. The funds will enable the opening of a sensory room for children with additional needs including Autism, ADHD, ADD, or for children experiencing anxiety or trauma attending the Eye Hospital at Hull Royal Infirmary.
Each year, the Eye Hospital cares for 15,000 children, delivering a range of acute, routine and tertiary acute services including consultation, specialised imaging and diagnostics, elective and emergency medical and surgical treatments, follow up care, monitoring of eye conditions and delivery of long term treatment programmes. Creating a sensory room to include light displays and projections, bubble tubes, wall decorations, sensory toys, music and other features will provide much needed stimulation and help calm and distract children attending the eye clinic, helping to ensure the experience of coming to the hospital is as easy as possible for children with additional needs and their parents/carers.
Please support Lee as he aims to raise the funds required to help such a vulnerable patient group. Every little bit helps!
