Orchard Toys hope to bring smiles to the faces of young patients and staff at the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital in Norwich having donated over £400 worth of their games and jigsaws.
Managing Director, Simon Newbery and Marketing Manager, Ali Brown joined staff and patients to present a selection of Orchard Toys products, which will be used across several wards and waiting rooms, as well as for one-to-one therapy and for children to play with other patients.
Simon Newbery said, “The hospital offers a phenomenal service to local children and their families and we hope that this donation will help the staff to make the experience of a hospital visit a little more fun.”
Emma Dolman, Matron for Children’s services commented, “we are always extremely grateful for donations such as these. Play is a normal part of childhood and being able to play in hospital is a great way of distracting children from what is happening to them and helps to make them feel more settled in the hospital environment. Children are seen in a number of department across the Trust and having games and jigsaws in all these areas helps to improve the overall experience for the child and family.”
