The Evening Telegraph is backing Kettering General Hospital’s Little Extras appeal, which aims to raise £80,000 in time for the handover of the hospital’s new paediatric ward in July.
In the new ward there will be much more space for play, both in the designated play room and in the single rooms and bays. This means there will be space for bigger toys and games, including a Space Invaders game and a jukebox, which will go into the new dedicated adolescent room, and a giant dolls house, which several children can play with at once.
Staff also hope to buy more toys for boys and to have a small play area created in every room and cubicle.
You can fund or part-fund a specific item on the wish list (the full wish list is available from the hospital fundraising team) or make a general donation to the fund.
You could also hold a fundraising event or get your school or workplace to sponsor an item.
