Our work in Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

We love providing a regular supply of 120 brand new books and regular storyteller visits to the hospital on our home turf of Gloucestershire, which we’ve been doing since 2014. It always feels special when we can highlight the service to local friends who face the trauma of a young person in hospital.

The team at GRH are fantastic, always going the extra mile to support us when they can – so much so, that we swiftly invited one of their teachers, Helen West, to join our Board of Trustees when she retired from teaching!

The children at GRH can’t get enough visits from our super smiley storyteller, Michael, who uplifts patients and their families with his tall tales. Michael is gifted at creating an instant rapport with young people, quickly putting them at ease and weaving their ideas into his stories until they are more often then not, laughing with joy.

Michael always bring a smile to the children’s wards!
