Double celebration for RMCH
RMCH is always looking for an excuse to party and
June was no exception with a double celebration for its third
birthday and Action for Sick Children clock presentation.
Entertainers have been dropping into RMCH throughout the month
to spread a little birthday cheer including singer January, who
performed at our Christmas Lights Switch On, the Royal Northern
College of Music, children's entertainer Barrington and Mary
The atrium was decorated with two banners including one made by
our young patients, balloons and pictures, also drawn by the
patients. Even the Senior Management Team joined in the fun by
helping to blow up the balloons.
The celebration finished with a party in the Teen Zone, before
Action for Sick Children's Chairman of the Trustees, Pamela Barnes
presented a clock to Trust Chairman Peter Mount to formally cement
the long standing relationship between our two organisations.
Peter Mount said: "It has been a great month for RMCH. On behalf
of the hospital, I would like to thank everyone who has come in to
help us celebrate as it really makes a difference to our young
patients. Action for Sick Children have played a major part in how
sick children are cared for and looked after in hospitals today and
we're all delighted to recognise our relationship with them. Pamela
Barnes and Action for Sick Children have transformed hospital care
Pamela Barnes, who has recently been awarded an Honorary
Fellowship of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health,
added: "We have been supporting children's services in Manchester
for more than half a century and it is an honour to see our
contribution in such a prominent place in RMCH to celebrate our
very special achievements".
