Apologies for the late blog today but the Snow Day has turned our schedule upside down at Trust HQ – hope you’re keeping warm inside and, if you have to go out, put your thermals on!
Here’s some news to warm the cockles of your heart. In January, the Trust was delighted to be able to pay for a group of children to attend the panto in Birmingham. Children who attend the metabolic clinic at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, and their carers, had a magical day out, all organised by the marvellous BCH staff. We were only too thrilled to be able to help – readers of the blog may remember that Campbell was cared for by the Birmingham Metabolic team and it is very special to be able to help them in return. They are all amazing and their care for the children attending the metabolic clinic is second to none. Putting on a panto trip takes some organisation and we were privileged to be able to help Anita, Anne, Satnam, Louise, Rachel, Catherine, and their colleagues in the metabolic department with this event.
The kids went to see Cinderella and kindly shared some photos with us. Awesome!
Huge thank you to you fundraisers out there for enabling our charity to do this. You wonderful lot are making a real difference to children’s lives and helping families cope with challenging medical conditions. A bit of panto sparkle is just what these kids need and we remain so grateful to you for making this happen. If you ever thought about undertaking a charity challenge or doing some fundraising for us, take a look at these photos and just see how worth it it is.
