Our new kitchen looks a treat!

Our children and young adults have been cooking up a storm in their newly refurbished kitchen.

Thanks to a generous donation, the kitchen has been fully transformed into a modern and accessible space – helping us to deliver ‘Quality time for everyone.’

It was great to see some of our children and young adults, Aaron, Caoimhe, Erin and Leroy, enjoying the new space.

Of course, they had to mark the opening with some baking – although we think most of the flour landed on Lauren, one of our Activity Coordinators!

The refurbishment was made possible after proceeds from the auction of Banksy’s artwork, Game Changer, was gifted to Southampton Hospitals Charity in May 2020.

The funds are currently being distributed throughout the UK to benefit the wider community of healthcare providers and charities that enhance the care and treatment provided by the NHS.

Children and Young Adult kitchen re-fit

Holly Smith, Acting Matron of our Children and Young Adults Service said:

“The new kitchen is a fantastic addition to the Children and Young Adults Service and provides a safe and modern environment for our children, young adults, families, staff and volunteers to use.

“They can enjoy activities such as cooking and baking, while added interactive and sensory experiences are provided by the media wall and lights.”

Special thanks go to National Building & Maintenance Solutions (NBMS), which carried out the refurbishment work and donated the interactive media wall and coloured spotlights.
