The COVID Pandemic Restrictions made it very difficult for Residents, Patients and Staff in RHD to keep up good sprits when Visitors were not allowed to visit relatives and friends. We were delighted to supply 20 x 10″ tablets to the wards so that communications could be visual for everyone.
Our 2019 Family Fun Day raised enough money to refurbish two of the family rooms in the hospital. This will be completed when COVID restrictions are lifted sufficiently to allow works to be carried out.
