Improving the IT provision in Rangammal School
The deaf children in Rangammal School get first class education and pastoral care which helps to level life’s ‘playing field’ a little for them. During 2013 we will be trying to level it a bit more by improving their IT facilities. IT and computer studies, being more visual than aural, will offer the children life skills and boost their employment prospects. The Trust hopes to fund a new computer room based in the Nursing College. This will be used by the children in the day and the student nurses in the evening. The target date for this to be operational is June 2013. All support for this is welcome.
Essex Group’s new appeal
Our energetic Essex Group are fund raising again. After last year’s successful ambulance campaign, they are now planning the much needed refurbishment of the operating theatre. They hope to install air filtration, a new steriliser and a delivery table. A large group of GPs, consultants, nurses and other medics from Essex will again visit Sylvia’s hospital this September to conduct a temporary medical camp with 1,000 patients expected to benefit.
