Ward 84 Annual Party July 2019

Every year some amazing parents of Ward 84 pull together to organise a HUGE ward party, this is held at Victoria Baths near The Children’s Hospital so that the children being treated on the ward are still able to attend if they are well enough. The party is held for all the families of ward 84 and the bone marrow transplant unit at Royal Manchester Childrens Hospital.

We were honoured to again be able to help with the party by donating sweet cones for the children, helium for the balloons, a candy cart and flower arrangements for the angel room.

I can not put into words how much time and effort the organizers and volunteer’s put into making the day perfect, they are an incredible bunch of people. It was an honour to be able to be a part of the day and to see the beautiful, supportive community.

The most beautiful part of the party is that no child from ward 84 is forgotten, they are all there with us in the Angel room, a room created especially to hang our angels and for families and friends to visit to take time to reflect and remember their loved ones

The venue looked breath taking and the party was a huge success, all the children had huge smiles on their faces from start to finish, it was a day for them to take time away from the battle they are all facing, magical memories were made that will be cherished for a lifetime 🌈

Here is a video of the day… https://vimeo.com/349527664?fbclid=IwAR3fYSbX6L_aJwHmHkacINmhimSqNNeCVKPYBqfMSpSCThaykhpvHj0VvM4
