Double celebration for RMCH

RMCH 3rd birthdayRMCH 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 Poppins.

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 for children."

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".
