WISHH May Update!

Welcome to our May update! We are excited to share our latest good news stories, as well as the ways you, your family, friends and colleagues can become involved to help us make a difference to patients cared for across Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital!

Due to the generosity of our fundraisers supporting our ‘Space to Grow Appeal’, families are now benefitting from a new sensory room, an enhanced family room and a sibling’s play area. A new specialist training facility within the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit has also been created. A HUGE thank you so much to everyone involved for helping us make a difference to over 500 premature babies and their families every year.   You’re incredible!

Thank you to everyone who has supported WISHH, through your generosity we have been able to provide new additional wheelchairs across Hull Hospitals.  Over Easter we brought smiles to faces of children spending time in hospital providing a wonderful host of arts, crafts, gifts and distraction items, we couldn’t have done it without your help!

Fundraiser Katie took part in the London Marathon to support the Acorn Ward raising over £2,200 inspired by the care her daughter Ophelia received. Tom and Jen have raised £6,866 for the Queen’s Centre Day Unit through their Gala Fundraiser – tickets are now available for their event later in the year. Hospital departments including the Speech and Language team held a World Voice Day event to support patients, followed by getting covered in mud at the Get Caked event! The Radiology team took part in a Three Peaks Challenge and the Dialysis team created a Family Tree fundraiser to support our work. A big WISHH thank you to all of our supporters.
