The children's ward at DMH has received another
generous donation of toys. Children from Ravensworth
School in Yarm visited the ward alongside their headmaster,
David Boddy and School Secretary, Gemma Brown to present the young
patients with the new toys. The school raised £300 by
holding a series of raffles and small events at social and
fundraising events arranged by the Friends Committee.
Years 5&6 children chose to donate to the children's ward in
particular because they see it as a local cause and also because
quite a few of the children from the school have been patients on
the ward themselves.
Jayne Auld the ward manager said: "We are extremely
grateful for the efforts of the children and staff of Ravensworth
School for this donation."
'Every aspect of my emergency care was dealt with quickly,
efficiently and professionally with full explanations and
compassion from all staff involved'.
