A creative arts charity visited an Orpington hospital with an interactive programme involving music.
Create’s ArtsAdventures project aims to help young patients who are suffering from a range of illnesses, injuries and disabilities by helping them to be creative and interact with others.
It visited the Princess Royal University Hospital, Farnborough Common, Orpington, where, led by Create’s professional musicians, young patients got the chance to use different instruments, create original sounds and recreate famous tunes.
Create’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive, Nicky Goulder said: “I am delighted that we have been able to take ArtsAdventures to these three London hospices, hospitals and beyond.
“ArtsAdventures enables the children to explore their creativity and grow in self-confidence, as well as distracting them from their illnesses and disabilities. We want them to be able to have fun together at a difficult time in their life. It is our huge privilege to give them this opportunity.”
The programme also visited Kings College Hospital and Demelza Children’s Hospice before moving on to locations in Berkshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire.
