Huddersfield Stake Artwork for Calderdale Royal Hospital

Calderdale Royal Hospital

At the Huddersfield Stake Primary Fun Day, children made a collage to display at Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax, entitled ‘Rainbow Hands.’  The children traced their hands onto coloured paper, cut out the paper hands and assembled them in the form of a rainbow which was then presented to Becki Taylor, Play Specialist, at the hospital.  

Calderdale Royal Hospital provides elective and emergency treatment for children from birth (if they are born at term) to 18 years old.  

Stake Primary President Emma Stephenson commented, “Huddersfield Stake has been blessed by taking part in a community project for one of our local hospitals.  Our wonderful primary children have been fully involved right from taking part in the Fun Day, to two children presenting the collage to the Children’s Ward.  We hope the sick children in the community attending Calderdale Royal Hospital would be uplifted by seeing our eye-catching picture, taking their minds off a little of why they were attending.” 

Becki informed everyone that toys and other equipment which the children at the hospital play with is all donated by parents. The primary decided to help further and members of Huddersfield Stake donated approved equipment, such as wooden and plastic toys, books and art material for future use.
