The units at the Huntingdon hospital are the Children’s Unit – Holly Ward – which provides care for children, and the Special Care Baby Unit, Huntingdonshire’s only neo-natal unit which cares for premature and sick babies.
The money raised by the charity is used to provide those things that the NHS simply cannot afford, but would love to have. It’s those items that can help make a child more comfortable, allow a young patient to go home to their family, get the latest equipment to improve a patient’s experience, and take a bit of the stress away.
From play equipment for hospitalised children and those awaiting their appointments to a sensory garden at the hospital and sensory equipment, Dreamdrops has raised the necessary money to buy items and invest in projects that make a difference.
The charity has also purchased new chairs for breastfeeding mothers and screen to preserve their privacy, as well as a camera for parents to photographs their newborns.
Dreamdrops is under the umbrella of Huntingdonshire Children’s Charity (charity number 1108920), which is a Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust’s charity.
