Theo visited the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital to see the hard work that goes on day in, day out by the team and to see how the money raised from the Many Hands Campaign has been used to make a huge difference to the children who are treated at the hospital.
Theo visited Ward 78 which is the Spinal, Orthopaedic and Neurosciences ward where children suffering road traffic accidents, nervous injury and diseases are treated. Lisa Stephens, the Ward Manager, introduced Theo to the hard working team and got to speak to the children about their injuries and their care at the hospital.
After the tour of the Ward Theo was taken to see the Mini C Arm, it is a specialist piece of equipment that can take X Rays while the patient is on the operating table, so the surgeon can see exactly what is happening during the operation. The Mini C Arm had been funded by the Many Hands Campaign, and was a great opportunity to see how the money raised makes such a huge difference to the hospital.
After 10 years, 2018 was Theo’s final year with the campaign and it was a fitting way to end his journey with the charity by seeing how the campaign has changed lives.
