We’d like to say a huge thank you to Craig Hinvest, dad to Holly Hinvest (pictured) who is currently receiving treatment at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) in Brighton.

Holly’s dad Craig has donated two 40 inch flat screen TV’s and stands, games console equipment, DVD players and computer games specifically for patients on the Oncology ward. Craig’s business associates at the West End Office Agents Society, Ed Betts, Mark Anstey and Paul Gold, and also Craig’s company Matthews & Goodman, have all made this donation possible and we are very grateful for the support.

Holly was diagnosed with ALL leukaemia on 5 November 2015. Holly’s symptoms were initially spotted by the school nurse at Great Walstead in Lindfield. Craig said of his donation:

“We felt that one of the things that made the biggest difference to Holly aside from her immediate care needs, was the provision of new entertainment equipment – a TV, DVD player and games console in her room during her lengthy hospital stays. It certainly has helped to pass the hours and get her back on her feet, playing on the Nintendo Wii during the periods between her chemotherapy treatment. We wanted the West End Office Agents Society to make a difference with their donation not only for Holly but for others too.”

They have since donated various children’s books to the ward and various games for the PS3 and Nintendo Wii, and pupils at Great Walstead are also planning to donate further items to the ward and we are extremely grateful for their donations.

Craig’s mother in law, Thelma, has also made a donation and delivered two new children’s cars to level 9 Oncology and Daycare this week (as demonstrated by Holly, above). A big thank you to Thelma’s company Bespoke Law Services, a local conveyancing firm based in Haywards Heath, for donating the bikes for young patients on the ward.
