After 20 years of constant use, the sensory facilities at Children’s Hospice South West’s Little Bridge House in Fremington were in need of refurbishment. Thanks to generous funding, including a donation from the children’s charity of rugby, the Wooden Spoon Society, the hospice has been able to completely refurbish the room into a high tech multi-sensory play room which was visited by rugby legend Phil Vickery on Friday 12 January.
Tracy Freame, Head of Care at Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) said:
Our families are set for an even more exciting journey through our Chronicles of Narnia Sensory Garden at Little Bridge House, thanks to the installation of brand new sound effects.
They include enhanced sounds such as boots walking through snow, thunder and lightning, the bells of the Snow Queen’s sleigh and the roar of Aslan the Lion.
The work has been made possible thanks to funding from Tesco’s Bags of Help grant scheme, which comes from the sale of carrier bags in its stores, and Groundwork UK. Thank you to everyone who voted in their local store!
