This month we have been providing a bolstered version of our Boost Box to hospitals. These tool kits help reduce anxiety for children isolated in hospital. Thanks to support from Ryman and their suppliers we have been able to add additional items! Our ‘boosted’ Boost Boxes include Crayola glitter markers, crafting gifts from Crafters Companion, Stabilo, Acco and BiC colouring pencils and Curious Universe colouring books and notepads from Artcoe. Lots of materials for arts and crafts fun!
Despite an expected £1.5 million drop in fundraising income, an estimated 50,000 children in hospital could be reached during the pandemic.
