We send ukuleles to the ultra-modern Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow – with the help of Asiyah Ahmad from the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.
Every year, 160,000 children from across Scotland and beyond are treated at the Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow. Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity (formerly Yorkhill Children’s Charity) sits at the heart of the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, raising money to ensure that Scotland’s children and their families have the best possible care and experience.
“Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity is delighted to be receiving this very generous donation of ukulele’s for young patients at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.
Our innovative play programmes help to distract, teach and treat children during their hospital stay. Thanks to the wonderful support of UKC-UK, we can continue ensuring that our young patients have the best possible experience in hospital through structured play activities.
Our Play Team are really looking forward to introducing the ukulele’s as an activity, as they will be a welcomed distraction for those patients who aren’t able to leave their wards. Our Hospital Chaplin Jim – an avid musician – is also keen to teach the children how to play the instruments.
We would like to thank Ukulele Kids Club UK for their support and look forward to keeping everyone up to date with all of the Ukulele fun from the wards!”
