I only went & won a Cinema room for The Freeman Hospital!

A couple of months ago I wrote a blog post sharing a competition where you could nominate your local hospital for a Cine-makeover....Obviously I nominated The Freeman Hospital in Newcastle where my girls both had their open heart surgery.....

I filled in the nomination form and forgot about it....I don't think I even asked people to vote but they did and I thank you for that....It was shortlisted and a panel of expert judges, including Mark Craven, editor of leading consumer magazine, Home Cinema Choice, Margaret Jeal, acting chair at the Action for Sick Children’s Charity and Heart Radio Yorkshire presenter, Rich Williams all choose the Freeman Hospital!!!

Through my nomination our hospital has only gone and won a cinema room worth more than £15,000 with a full suite, top-of-the-range equipment including a HD projector and 100 inch screen, state-of-the-art surround sound, Blu-Ray player and games console, as well as a series of children’s movies all from Finite Solutions!

I was emailed this afternoon to inform me of the news....I was in shock and cried happy tears....

Ward Sister Lesley Hamilton said of the win for Freeman Hospital: “We are absolutely delighted to be receiving the cine-makeover and couldn’t be happier to receive such a fantastic prize. We have a hard-working community of medical and care professionals at Freeman Hospital, and we are dedicated to ensuring our patients’ stays on our wards are as enjoyable and relaxed for all as possible. The prize will greatly assist us with bringing joy and relaxation for our child patients and visitors to our wards.”

I am so happy that something I have done, something as simple as a nomination is going help children and their families during what can be the worst time in their lives....

Thank you if you voted and Eek! I am a little bit in shock!

****Edited**** The news has sunk in a little more and I blogged a more about it in my Word of the Week post and about how grateful I am to the Freeman Hospital. Without the Freeman hospital my girls might not have been here today!!
