We have been working with the Countess of Chester to help make the experience, after surgery, a little bit easier for children at the hospital. The Countess Charity asked us to fund some improvements they wanted to make to the room where children wake up after they have been through surgery.
Our grant enabled the area to be totally refreshed with new colourful flooring, bay curtains and a beautiful mural which is proving a welcome distraction and talking point for children using the facilities.
Ngozi Ikoku, Trust and Legacy Fundraiser at The Countess Charity commented:
“We were delighted to receive a grant from The Williams Family Foundation for our Children’s Theatre Recovery Mural Project. The Countess Charity exists not to replace what the NHS provides but to enhance it. The Williams Family Foundation’s support has enabled us to make a real difference to patient care through the creation of a vibrant and enchanting mural with lots of interest to distract children whilst recovering from surgery before their parents and carers arrive. The Foundation are a pleasure to work with and we are most grateful for all their support.”
