As part of our sensory room appeal, we are aiming to raise £15,000 to create a new sensory room for children with additional needs 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. We are raising funds to 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. 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. Any funds raised over our target will enable us to make enhancements to sensory facilities at the Eye Hospital.
Hospital Chief Finance Officer and WISHH Trustee, Lee Bond, is about to embark on the challenge of a lifetime as he bids to run the London Marathon to help reach our £15,000 target. The funds will enable the opening of sensory areas for children with additional needs including Autism, ADHD, ADD, or for children experiencing anxiety or trauma attending the Eye Hospital at Hull Royal Infirmary.
Please support Lee as he aims to raise the funds required to help such a vulnerable patient group. Every little bit helps! You can support Lee via his fundraising page.
