Play in Hospital Week 2015
The 28th September is the start of Play in Hospital Week 2015. The Theodora Children’s Charity will be shining the spotlight on the quirky antics that the Giggle Doctors use to put big beaming smiles on poorly children’s faces, all in an attempt to raise awareness of the importance play-time and recreation can have on the wellbeing of sick children.
A stay in hospital can be a gloomy time for a child, isolated not only from the comfort of their homes and their own bed, but also from their school-friends and family. Deprived of appropriate interactive play-time, the wellbeing of children may suffer.
Play in Hospital Week, spearheaded every year by the National Association of Health Play Specialists, highlights how vital play can be for children recovering in hospital. The Theodora Children’s Charity is playing its part by continuing to send the wonderful Giggle Doctors to locations all around the country to cheer up hospitalized youngsters.
We will be posting videos and photos every day for the rest of the week. Make sure you take a look at facebook.com/GiveaGiggle and twitter.com/GiveaGiggle to see how we’ve been getting involved.
