Emergency packs for the Royal Surrey Hospital

The Club supplies packs of toiletries for use by parents accompanying their children to the emergency ward. Concerned about their children, these parents often arrive at the Hospital without any provision for themselves. The Club provides emergency packs including flannels, shower gel, toothpaste and toothbrushes, combs, razors and other useful toiletries. This work is organised by member Valerie.  All members, however, contribute to the contents.  Over 1,000 packs have been delivered over the years. A typical pack is shown below.

The Club was delighted to receive the following thank yous recently for its work at the Hospital:

I was so touched by the wonderful care package I was given during very early hours of this morning on the Hascombe Children’s Ward at The Royal Surrey County Hospital.  Thank you so much.  It had everything I and my teenage son needed; so kind, thoughtful and helpful at a time of need. Thank you

And another:
 Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for the toiletries you provided to Royal Surrey Hospital children’s ward. I brought my 6 yr old son to A&E this morning with vomiting bug, and ended up staying all day and overnight as he had to have IV fluids. The hospital shop seems to have disappeared, so we were stuck for overnight toiletry essentials as I couldn’t leave him alone to go out and buy some. It’s a small thing but a big thing… many many thanks!
