Space for Play

In September 2016 we launched our Space for Play Appeal to install a bespoke, outdoor play area designed to meet the needs of children staying in Great Western Hospital’s Children’s Ward.

We are delighted to announce that we have reached our appeal target, raising over £100,000!

With your help we have been able to transform this large outside courtyard linked to the ward into a seaside themed play area with pirate ship, a helicopter and roundabout; as well as interactive panels and play equipment suitable for less able or very young children.

On the 5th July we were joined by 60 of our supporters in the glorious sunshine for the grand opening.  

A huge thank you to everyone who fundraised for the Space for Play Appeal and donated. Your support has made such a difference to the experience of thousands of children that spend time in the Children’s ward.
