Special Teddy Bears which help explain medical procedures and treatments to children will be bought from a £4,000 charity donation.
ChYps, a section of the Northfleet-based EllenorLions Hospice charity, has been handed the money by bosses at Air and Breathe nightclub, Dartford, through the Echo Foundation Trust which distributes money to children’s charities.
EllenorLions Hospice lead nurse Tracey Dempster said: “The money will make a real difference to the children and families that chYps look after.
“It will enable the nursing team to have up-to-date effective equipment that will be used directly with families and it will also enable chYps to have a training mannequin so that teaching can be fun and interactive.”
Money from the donation will also go towards medical equipment including new stethoscopes, thermometers and an electronic blood pressure machine.
ChYps provides full hospice care to children and young people with life limiting and life threatening illnesses and who are cared for and supported within their own homes.
