New Cross Hospital Unveil Wolves Aid Latest Donation

New Cross Hospital was delighted recently to unveil Wolves Aid's contribution, a tactile wall mural, to the New Urgent and Emergency Care Centre.

The mural, which is placed within the paediatric waiting area will be utilised by both patients and siblings of those using the Centre. The donation of £4,235.60 which part funded the piece produced by Mike Ayres Design will offer the opportunity for an enjoyable sensory experience for children aged 1-10 years and children and young adults with learning disabilities, autism, blind and visual impairment.

The design of the mural, of which children and young people were consulted, aims to provide something that the children, and their parents and siblings could physically engage with whilst waiting and it will be a permanent and welcoming distraction that will stand the test of time from the thousands of visitors that will pass through the Centre each year.

The mural, which adheres to the Trust's Infection Prevention and Infection Control requirements, also has lights and sounds enabling the children to play short games.

Leanne Bood, Fundraising Coordinator for The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust Charity, said

"On behalf of the Interior Design Group who worked on this project and the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust Charity, I wish to convey our sincere thanks. Your support will help us to make a real difference to the young patients and their families of the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust".
