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.
As part of the campaign, WISHH Trustee Lee Bond was hoping to be taking part in the London Marathon and originally was aiming to raise £10,000 of our total. Unfortunately, due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, the 2020 London Marathon has sadly been cancelled. However, we are still determined to make the sensory room a reality and we need your help to do so.
We’re aiming to raise £6,200 through donations and fundraisers. You can find more about this and see where we are at with our target by visiting our JustGiving page. Any help that you can provide is appreciated by all of us here at WISHH and Hull Hospitals and will help make a difference to some of our community’s most vulnerable children.
