A Big thank you to Momentum for our new wall art display a colourful fairground scene and an underwater scene of tropical sealife now adorn two large walls on Sunshine Ward at Kingston Hospital, thanks to another refurbishment by Momentum.
The beautiful artwork was installed on the six-bedded bay of Sunshine Ward as part of Momentum Children’s Charity’s ongoing commitment to enhance the healing environment at the hospital.
Over the past 13 years the Kingston-based charity has carried out extensive refurbishment projects at the hospital, including installing a Teenage Room, a Sensory Room and carrying out makeovers in the Paediatric Outpatients and A&E departments. More recently the charity brought a beautiful and tranquil ‘Secret Garden’ to the outside play area.
Clinical Practice Educator Jaymini Patel said: “The new walls look beautiful and really brighten up the ward. When our young patients are in here for days at a time, being able to look up at such stunning artwork from their hospital beds can have such a positive impact on their stay.”
In addition to refurbishing large areas of the Paediatric Department at Kingston Hospital to enhance the healing environment, Momentum provides emotional and practical support to many families at the hospital and in the Kingston area as part of its Family Support Programme.
Momentum, based in Kingston-upon-Thames, receives no government funding so relies entirely on the support of the public and funds raised through its charity work. To find out more about the charity visit www.moment-um.org
