Bromborough firm donates gaming kart to Claire House Children’s Hospice

Youngsters and young adults from Claire House Children’s Hospice can enjoy gaming fun thanks to Bromborough’s Parity Medical.

The Bromborough firm donated a gaming kart, and a selection of games, to their local children’s hospice, which helps seriously and terminally ill children and their families.

In April, the team presented the equipment they had built to the hospice’s play and activities team leader Lawren Harris.

The donation was funded by a Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser last year as a fun way to raise cash for the charity.

Parity Medical staff suggested they build a gaming cart, which puts entertainment and inclusion into the lives of children with disabilities.

Cash raised also paid for a monitor, which was mounted to the kart, and an added Xbox – donated by Get Well Games – and some games.

Lewis Croft, Corporate Fundraiser for Claire House, thanked the Parity Medical team for the donation.

He said, “Thank you so much for coming over to Claire House Wirral and not only donating an amazing piece of equipment that will be enjoyed by many of our children and young people, but for also giving us their time, we really appreciate it.”

Ruth Morrison from Parity Medical said, “We were keen to support a charity that is close to home, so this donation to Claire House Children’s Hospice was particularly meaningful to us.

“We hope that our donation can help to bring some smiles and positive experiences to the children and young adults who are attending Claire House.” 

Claire House helps seriously and terminally ill children make the most of the time they have, however long or short that may be.

By providing specialist nursing and end of life care, as well as emotional support, Claire House helps families through some of the toughest times of their lives.
