Baxterbear was TREEKLED, arriving with Dr.Anil Budh-Raja GP who qualified from Guy’s, King’s and St.Thomas’ Hospital to Evelina Children’s Hospital on Thursday 29th November, receiving a bright warm welcome, by Helen Jackson, Communications Director for the Hospital.
Evelina Children’s Hospital is a specialist NHS hospital in London. It is a part of Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and provides teaching hospital facilities for King’s College London.
Baxterbear was TREEKLED to visit the children in the wards of this wonderful sunny, cheerful hospital with it’s curved glazed roof a new approach to health care design on London’s South Bank, visiting the Wards where he was joined by play specialists and introduced to the in-patient children.
Baxterbear created instant intrigue and smiles, hugs all round and played with the children, while Dr Anil Budh-Raja talked with the families. Baxterbears and a variety of Baxterbear colouring sheets were given to the children by Baxterbear , with the help of Anil, Helen and Adam.
Baxterbear was TREEKLED to be introduced to Evelina Children’s Hospital by Adam who had bought Baxterbears in 2010 on The epic March of the Coldstream Guards – one in particular for a very special little girl who visits the hospital. Adam wanted Baxterbear to make a difference as a token of his gratitude to the hospital. Now Baxterbear will be trying to become a regular visitor. He loves the ambience of this very special hospital.
Adam kindly took photos as a memento of Baxterbear’s visit. On leaving, the children families and staff seemed delighted with meeting Baxterbear. Baxterbear left hoping he too had made a difference !
Knowing each child was cared for and each with a mascot Baxterbear to hug. They will definitely remember him.
Why a Beach? I hear you ask it is the name of the social heart of the building the base of the glass roofed hospital like a conservatory with a TREEKLED ambience
