This Christmas, the CKDCF donated £1,000-worth of items and 200 selection boxes to the children’s cancer wards at Newcastle’s RVI hospital.
The items will act as a distraction for children on the ward, many of whom are required to remain on the ward for a prolonged period of time – with some having to remain in isolation.
At the Christmas party for all the patients of wards 4 and 14, 200 selection boxes were handed out by the CKDCF’s own Father Christmas. The event is a welcome break for the patients still undergoing treatment, allowing them and their parents to interact with others in similar situations.
The CKDCF is proud to make this annual donation, as the RVI treats a high number of young Cumbrian patients.
