We are delighted to announce that on Monday 19 June 2017 the chill-out room for young people with cancer opened at St George’s Hospital. We were delighted to come to see the room and meet Nikki, the TYA nurse who will be using this room as a base for counselling and therapeutic activities.
Please read St George’s press statement here:
Over 6 years we have raised almost £20,000 to enable St George’s Hospital transform a small tatty staff room into a relaxing oasis for young people with cancer, as well as being a base for Nikki, a specialist nurse (funded by Macmillan Nurses) who will provide support and therapeutic activities – which we are hoping to support in the future.
This has only been possible thanks to the support of Furzedown neighbours, local schools, businesses and friends. Including the generous donations from Heyland & Whittle, plus fundraising and support from Graveney School and FCN.
There will be a full opening later in the year
Thanks to the staff at Bloomsbury, the room looked great and they really saved the day when one of the tables caught fire just before the guests arrived – they put it out and relaid everything without any fuss!
Heads &Tails were looked after by Hannah, and Ava!
The lucky winner of a weekend at the Bloomsbury hotel – Dave Sollis – was chosen by Sally Light, the chief executive of MNDA.
Mike Richards and The Firebirds Function Band put on a really good show!
Thanks also to the photographer Phil from Ignite-images who took some great shots on the night, if you were there some are still available to buy. http://3223602.tifmember.com/?Action=_VC&id=123041002&ppp=0&ppwd=26502khk
