Bolingey Barbarians brighten hospital play space

Posted on:

Cornish veteran rugby side the Bolingey Barbarians visited Royal Cornwall Hospital’s Children’s Garden this week to see first-hand the ‘4 in a row’ wall mounted game provided through their generous funding via Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity (RCHT Charity).

The recently opened ‘Garden of Freedom,’ provides a space away from clinical environment for young people who are perhaps patients or visiting family at the hospital.

In their 30th season, the core aim of the Barbarians is to support causes relating to children through their shared sporting interest,

“We are delighted to make this presentation to Treliske Hospital, as one of our worthy causes this season,” Roger Mead, Chairman, Bolingey Barbarians.

Thanks were extended to the group from the children’s unit team who witness the benefit of the garden and the game to their patients,

“We would like to express how much we appreciate the equipment. It is making lots of our paediatric patients very happy.” Said Stephanie Camden-Entwistle, Health Play Specialist.

A member of the Bolingey Barbarians presents the Fundraising Manager with a commemorative plaque.
