Martin Newton, Ramizul Haque, and Harry Crabtree, who created a project and took their idea for providing fun items for South Tyneside Hospital to The Key. The Key works to create a world where young people believe in their own ideas and can take responsibility for living them. The North East charity agreed to give them the money and with the help of our School Council, set about making their project a reality. Together, choosing and buying everything from toys and baby walkers to craft materials and arranging delivery and collection.
Through this project students have had a lot of fun whilst developing a whole range of skills, including problem-solving, decision-making, time management and communicating with people in authority and of course donating £1,000 worth of toys, equipment and materials which will help to keep young visitors to the children’s A&E department at South Tyneside District Hospital entertained and relaxed.
