Care for Kids helps transform the play area at North Devon District Hospital.
A playroom at North Devon District Hospital has been given a bright new look thanks to Care for Kids North Devon.
The charity has transformed the play area on the Caroline Thorpe Ward with a colourful beach hut, bespoke fun cupboards, and Punch and Judy reading corner.
It was officially opened by local writer and television presenter Martin Dorey, the charity’s new patron, on Wednesday to coincide with the charity’s fifth anniversary.
Jacky Massos, of Care for Kids, said: “The playroom cupboards have been funded by the charity and took lots of design and planning.
“They provide valuable storage space and have given a positive lift to the playroom environment for the children, families and staff using the facilities.
“Big thank-you to Laura Chittock for her designs, and Watts Bros for taking on the project for us.”
