HIGOS DONATES TO THEODORA CHILDREN’S CHARITYTuesday 14th June 2016
Higos Insurance Services is delighted to support Theodora Children’s Charity.
The ethos at the heart of the charity is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres by providing visits from professional performers (Giggle Doctors) who have been trained to work in a medical environment and with children with disabilities.
Giggle Doctors come from a wide range of backgrounds and include actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers. Theodora believe that laughter is the best medicine and aim to bring interaction and activities back to children who are going through a scary and upsetting time.
Flick Franks of the Higos Community Fund commented “We are thrilled to have donated £500 to Theodora Children’s Charity. It has been an absolute pleasure to meet Dr Oui Oui (Pauline) and find out about the work she does with the charity. As a community broker it’s great to be able to help children in two hospitals local to our branches and bring some laughter to them.”
Emily Swords, Chief Executive of Theodora Children’s Charity commented “We are so delighted Higos has chosen to support our Giggle Doctor visits at the Royal United Hospital in Bath and at Southampton General Hospital. Their amazing gift will bring smiles to so many children and their families by funding Giggle Doctor visits to 50 children. That's a lot of smiling faces. A huge thank you to them.”
