Ibstock Place School have been fundraising for Momentum since 2008 through a variety of fundraising events. Each year we give a talk to the school about Momentum and have also had the chance to show a number of students around Kingston Hospital for them to see the work that their generous donations have enabled us to do.
The money they have donated has been put towards a variety of projects including improving the outpatients department at Kingston Hospital. Through their kind support we have been able to refurbish the main reception; the area has been decorated in a nautical theme including a specially designed lighthouse named after Ibstock Place School. These improvements mean that the children's visits to hospital are made more bearable at a very difficult time.
