A campaign to make hospital stays better for children and parents at the James Paget University Hospital has been given a boost thanks to the generosity of an East Anglian lighting company.

Beccles based The Living Light Company Limited recently launched its new range of LED mood lighting.

This range allows colour changing by remote control, they are cordless and rechargeable, and come in shapes from balls and eggs to cubes and plant pots.

They are suitable for outdoor and indoor use and the LED mood balls are ideal for floating on water features, ponds or swimming pools.

MD Max Munford and her colleague Julia Woods began to wonder if the egg-shaped light would be particularly popular with children.

“I approached the James Paget University Hospital’s children’s ward to see if they had used sensory equipment,” said Max.

“After speaking to senior sister Justine Goodwin it transpired that she was in the process of launching a fundraising campaign purely for sensory equipment. The Living Light Company Limited was more than happy to donate an egg to their cause.”

The donation has already proved popular with children on the ward.

“It was great to meet Max and receive the kind donation of a light changing egg. This will be a huge help towards both the calming and interaction of children on the ward,” said Justine Goodwin, senior sister on the children and young person’s unit at the Gorleston hospital.
