Visit to St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington
Spread a Smile visited St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington on Tuesday 17 th January. It was our first visit to St Mary’s since our trial visit last September. Our team of entertainers included fairy Victoria Hope, and magicians Ian Manly and Martin Rees. We visited the children’s oncology, haematology and outpatients wards, entertaining a large range of children from four to eighteen years with magic, singing, glitter tattoos and balloons.
We are receiving funding this year from Imperial College Healthcare Charity to visit St Mary’s once a month with three entertainers and Cassie our PAT dog. We are really grateful for this opportunity to entertain at a new hospital and extend smiles across London!
Thank you to Sharon Samuels and Laura Quinton-Navarro, Play Specialists at St
Mary’s, for helping us with the visit.
