Cutting edge tech for Shooting Star Hospice, Hampton
State of the art technology was donated to children at a Hampton hospice.
Charity Lifelites installed a range of new gadgets including an art touch-screen, movement-sensor, iPads, and gaming consoles, at Shooting Star Chase in Hampton.
The charity, which provides technology at 49 baby and children’s hospices across the UK, said the equipment is fun and educational and has special adaptations for children with disabilities.
Sandi Hillery, head of care at Shooting Star, said she was thrilled with the donation and thanked Lifelites. She said: “The specialist equipment enables the young people we support to be creative, communicate and take control themselves.
“No matter what their disability, this equipment means the young people are able to enjoy the same experiences as their peers.”
The equipment, which was handed over on September 3, was funded by donations from Capital FM’s Help a Capital Child, Thomas Cook Children’s Charity and Lifelites Master’s Ride, an annual London to Brighton bike ride organised by the Province of Middlesex.
