The latest news from Ukulele Kids Club UK is the addition of another hospital to the UKC family, we’re sending batches of ukuleles to GO create! at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.
The GO create! arts programme has been running at Great Ormond Street Hospital since 2005. Not only has the programme been used as an example of best practice, it has also been recognised for the quality and innovation of the programme itself and it’s contribution to the field of arts and health.
“The ukuleles from Ukulele Kids Club UK have already made a fantastic impact at Great Ormond Street Hospital. The instruments have been introduced on to wards as part of our regular music and art programme, GO create! and patients have been very happy to receive them.
The ukes have helped with reducing anxiety and as a distraction for children waiting for operations.
Susie Hall, Head of GO create!
