Our young cancer patients got a boost following a visit by the Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund – delivering backpacks full of goodies to support them during a stay in hospital.

The backpacks include a cuddly Lennox lion, blanket, cosy socks, journal, colouring books and pencils, earphones, games and a water bottle – all there to keep them comfortable and occupied in our hospitals.

The bags don’t only cater to our young patients either; they also contain items to support parents or carers spending time in hospital with them. These include a travel cup, toiletries, charger and neck pillow.

Lindsey Bidwell, Lennox’s Relations and Partnerships Manager, said: “It’s all about showing them we’ve got their backs and are there for them.

“It’s really lovely to be able to give these to a child, and for them to know they’re not alone.”

The backpacks, which are being delivered to a number of hospitals, have been partly funded by the Essex Freemasons.
