Brickset users raise £300 for children's cancer ward
Remember the charity raffle that Kevbags organised a few weeks ago? Thanks to the generosity of Brickset users, a grand total of £300 was raised which Kev used to buy LEGO for his local hospital's children's cancer ward.
He took it there today and this picture shows five year old Rohan, currently suffering with pneumonia, with Karen Foster, a Hospital Play Specialist.
"The LEGO will provide hours of fun for the older children who have to stay in hospital. As well as bringing children together socially in small groups this will benefit children who have to stay in their rooms." said Karen. "We would like to say a big thank you to all who have donated to provide us with the LEGO and bringing hours of fun to the children."
Kev added "Rohan, who can't leave his room at the moment, decided to keep hold of The Batcave to build this afternoon..."
You can read more in the forum, including the list of sets Kev bought -- quite a haul by the looks of things!
So, a big thank you to everyone who contributed, and especially to Kev for organising it. We will have to do it again!
