Queen Alexandra Hospital, in Cosham, put in a bid to Wave 105’s Cash for Kids scheme and got £3,800 towards a portable interactive floor.

The floor will help distract children while they are spending time in hospital and will also get them up and out of their beds. It also helps doctors to assess a patient’s mobility through play.

Victoria Greenshields, fundraising manager at the Cosham hospital, said: ‘On Wednesday I received an email from Cash for Kids with the fantastic news that we had been successful in our application, and they were donating towards the £10,000 project.
