"Our pupils had a fabulous time"

We've loved being the charity partner of Redcliffe School in Chelsea for the last year and meeting the delightful children who have helped raise funds for us. At Christmas the school choir sang carols in the hospital atrium.

In July we attended their end-of-year assembly and received an amazing cheque to support our work at Chelsea Children's Hospital. We are so grateful for their generosity. 

Earlier in the year we had a special visit from some pupils from the school to learn about hospital life and the work of doctors and nurses. The student nurses showed the children how to take a patient's temperature and blood pressure and how to test oxygen levels. The children also learnt how to care for patients who needed help with feeding, washing or tooth-brushing. “It was lovely to have the children here. We're glad lots of them are now interested in becoming doctors or nurses!” said Rebecca McLoughlin, Charity Manager.

Liz Powell from Redcliffe School added: “Thank you so much for making the hospital visit such a fun experience for the children – they had a fabulous time learning lots of new skills and didn't want to return to school!”
