We provide portable activity and sensory trolleys to many hospitals, these can be enjoyed at any time, and take the playroom to the child, providing a range of activities and distractions. These trolleys are designed to offer stimulation and fun activities during the times that playrooms may not be open, evenings and weekends, and also if a child is too poorly to leave their bed. Our sites cover Newcastle furthest North to the isle of Wight furthest South. Originally funded through the Big Lottery Fun which completed in December 2012 these trolleys are now supported by the charity’s funds.
Please see below the response from one of the play specialist after delivery of our trolley. I also wanted to give you some instant feedback regarding the sensory trolley! It is brilliant – I used it 4 times on Monday afternoon – the most enjoyable items are the bendy men! The big glitter ball and the rain drum with the beads. I also love the wiggly worms which are great for positional distraction as they be placed on carer’s shoulders and arms and taken for a walk!! One little boy who was very anxious at having a blood test – who previously had a portacath – loved the fact that he could choose a draw – and it was a surprise to see what was in it – the anticipation of the range of items really supports a distraction play story.
