Dr Rosena opens TYA chill-out room

For over 5 years FACE has been supporting the development of a special unit in St Georges that will uplift the experiences of children and young adults while they are in hospital being treated for cancer, by creating a special zone for relaxation, communication, and enjoyment. A specialist nurse advocate (funded by MacMillan Nurses) will be based in the room to support young people.

The chill-out room was officially opened on 18th September by our local MP Dr Rosena Allin-Khan with St George’s staff, governers and members of FACE – it was great to hear from a young patient about how much this will mean to them and staff who will be working there.

This was only possible thanks to all the fundraising efforts locally; including Graveney School and FCN. This successful outcome demonstrates what a caring and brilliant community we live in. By uniting efforts from individuals, families, schools, organisations, and enterprises in and around Furzedown we can make such a difference and have helped make this dream become a reality.
