UKCS staff member Lucy Ainsley will be donning fancy dress and braving a 120 foot zip-wire run from the maternity block of Ipswich Hospital.

The Superhero Zip Wire charity event takes place on bank holiday Monday, 28th May.  Lucy is raising funds for the children’s ward play therapy team, who have provided extensive help and support to Lucy’s own family, having three boys whose lives are affected by Hereditary Multiple Exostoses (HME).  Their cause is our chosen charity of the year, and you can read more about it here: UKCS Charity of the year: Brew for Blake

In her own words on the importance of the play therapy team, Lucy writes:

The play team have been a massive help to my family, with frequent hospital appointments & procedures and the team are always on hand to help with the children.  They spend time with the children, offer ward tours for anxious children, attend clinics with the children, and offer pre and post-operative services.

We wish Lucy good luck on the day and look forward to seeing the photographs!
