On Saturday 10th December, we welcomed children cared for in our hospital to a magical Christmas party, kick starting the Christmas celebrations. The party took place in the afternoon at Queen's Hospital, in The Education Centre.
We decided to spread joy this Christmas, with a well-deserved treat for those who have been cared for in our hospitals, including those from asthma, diabetes, haemoglobinopathy and homecare departments. The children had a chance to spend time together away from the hospital wards and focused solely on having Christmas fun! The party was funded by donations made at the charity’s annual Christmas ball in November 2022.
Activities included arts and crafts and face painting. Enertainment was provided by the much-loved Jelly Jade and Skittleman. Lunch was provided and each child received a jolly snowman box of goodies.
Each child was gifted with a special present , followed by a magical story from Santa himself. Parents were also able to join in on the fun, mingling with each other and enjoying mince pies.
