Care home brings to cheer to children in hospital with a big donation of books

  • Cedar Court Care Home in Cranleigh, Surrey, has donated 150 children’s books to Royal Surrey Charity, bringing smiles to children in hospital over Christmas and New Year.

Young children being cared for in Hascombe Ward, children’s outpatients, and A&E over the past few weeks have been given a copy of Gerry Giraffe and the Loch Ness Monster – a charming and colourful illustrated story which they could keep.

The books were written by Cedar Court Business development manager Pam Sharman. She said:

“The books were a small gesture, but we were thrilled at how warmly they have been received, both by staff at the hospital and by the children in need of care and treatment over the festive period. Hopefully, it lifted their spirits and raised some smiles.”

Petra Ionescu  Care Home Manager, Cedar Court said:

“We have such a close relationship with our colleagues in the NHS, and the team at Cedar Court wanted to do something to show our support and solidarity. We take a lot of referrals from the hospital and feel part of one big team, especially now as we face all the challenges of this pandemic; we are all working so hard to care for and serve our community.

Sally Jochimsen, Individual Giving Fundraising Manager at Royal Surrey Charity accepted the donated books on behalf of the hospital.

She said:

“The team in the children’s department were absolutely thrilled to receive them, and the books were also shared with the children’s A&E, and children’s outpatients department so each child seen over Christmas received a gift to cheer them up after having been treated here. This kind donation has truly made a difference to our younger patients – a big thank you to everyone living and working at Cedar Court Care Home for thinking of us this Christmas.”
