A Helping Hand on the Hollies | Where your money goes

Where your money goes

Working across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, we invest in charitable projects that our NHS staff and patients tell us they need.

 

Thanks to your support we've recently funded the following projects:

  • Wipe clean riser chair for the ICU Peterborough, assisting the physical rehabilitation of patients. This equipment will enable patients to practice using the chair with the aim to get patients home quicker.

  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) books to expand the library for staff, diversity champions and students at the recovery college. Helping to spread the EDI message across the organization.

  • Hand held fans for the cardiac team which are for patients to support them to manage their condition in their own home.

  • Bowling event for adults with mental health conditions with the Huntingdonshire Adult Locality Team to help build friendships and confidence.

What we do

A Helping Hand on the Hollies

Caring for adults with learning disabilities and mental health challenges.

Covid-19 has been a difficult time for those cared for on the Hollies Ward at the Cavell Centre in Peterborough. Many of the adults on the ward have found themselves distressed by their nurses and doctors suddenly wearing full body protective equipment and their families not being able to visit in person. We have been able to help by providing new fun games for patients and staff to use on the ward - bringing laughter and enjoyment along the way. To name a few of these items: giant noughts and crosses, 4 in a row, a table tennis table, some speakers to play music and the High School Musical Box Set.

Clinical Nurse Specialist Kailash Ludhor said: “This has been a great initiative from Head to Toe charity and I was pleased that we were able to  use the funds to improve patient engagement and experience on the unit.”

One patient on the ward said: "My favourite thing is the blue tooth speaker because I like listening to music and on the plus side it changes colour while playing."
