The new Thomas Cook

The new Thomas Cook Children’s Charity Theatres Department is officially open! In December 2015, Thomas Cook Children’s Charity donated £150,000 to enhance Alder Hey Children’s Hospital’s Theatres department. Covering the Daycase Unit, In-patient waiting areas, corridors to theatres and anaesthetic rooms, this generous donation has allowed us to install a wide range of games and equipment to suit children and young people of all ages visiting the department. Including interactive digital games, traditional soft play activities for younger children and a bespoke Teenage Room, the newly enhanced Theatres department now provides distraction and entertainment for our young patients and families from the moment they arrive, all the way through their journey to Theatres. The Veolia Environmental Trust supports Alder Hey Children’s Hospital’s ambitious plans to create a magical Woodland Walk in Springfield Park! In November 2017, The Veolia Environmental Trust granted £28,120 to Alder Hey Children’s Charity to create a magical Woodland Walk in Springfield Park. Helping us transform Springfield Park into a fun and welcoming area, our new Woodland Walk will include edible planting trails, interactive signage and seating for families, patients and the local community to enjoy. This generous support from The Veolia Environmental Trust will make the wonderful natural environment around Alder Hey in the Park easy to access and enjoy, and will open in 2019. 14 Charity Partner News
