National Play in Hospital Week - CTP Party
Did you know that this week was National Play in Hospital Week. The idea of the week is to celebrate the Play & Youth service in all its glory. CTP Party went along to a very large Children's Hospital in Southampton to support the play team.
The play team are a small, self funded group covering every ward from Cancer care to Cardiac and Neurological rehab. They have over 100 children as patients at any one time. The week is a way of giving back to the children and young people who find themselves using the hospital services. They are the real hero's!
The team from the NHS contacted us to see if we could send in some Superheroes to spread a little cheer to the inpatients which we were more than happy to do.
The children, who varied in ages loved the superheroes and even declared that they wanted to be one when they grew up! The team also had their very own Superhero Dogs who assisted with entertaining the kids. Archie & Leo are 2 very special dogs who are regular visitors to the wards so knew their way around!
We hope all the children, their families, doctors and nurses we met this week had a great time and hopefully we inspired some of the children. Thanks to Southampton Hospital for letting us come along!
