Five-year-old Maddie Anderson from Ashford, with other young patients, families and hospital staff, enjoyed a recent performance of the summer pantomime Robinson Crusoe by Starlight, in the hospital playroom.

The Trust’s Play Service Coordinator Izabella Wakula said: “Everybody loved it; it was very loud but lovely. Patients interacted with the actors and they all had a very good time.”

Starlight Children’s Foundation provides entertainment in hospitals and hospices across the UK and grants wishes for children with serious and terminal illnesses.
