Patients and visitors on Hurley ward at the Royal Berkshire Hospital enjoyed a welcome interruption to their routine with an afternoon of Easter arts and crafts. Joined by staff, the group had fun creating Easter bonnets, while enjoying a nice cup of tea along with scones and jam, a good old fashioned sing-a-long, and a raffle.
Patient and raffle winner Kathy Childs commented: “The staff here are such a great bunch and we’ve all had a lovely time. I was so surprised to win the raffle – what a treat!”
Matron, Claire Manneh said: “We do as many creative activities as we can on Hurley ward to support the care of our elderly patients, and Easter is a perfect opportunity to bring out the art and crafts. It is always rewarding to see our patients enjoying themselves and we know that relaxing stimulation is an important part of their recovery.”
Chief Executive, Steve McManus was delighted to be invited to join the party and to have the opportunity to wish patient Mary Flew a very happy 94th birthday and share in her special day.
