Ward two welcomes number 4

September 26, 2011

Children at the Bradford Royal Infirmary were full of smiles and laughter after one of the stars from the hit Cbeebies show, Numberjacks, paid them a surprise visit.

 

Numberjack Number 4 visited ward 2 and took time to talk and dance for staff and patients.

 

Little Jadielle Jeffers-Hey (6), from Lower Grange, who was visiting the hospital for a scan, giggled as she hugged and tickled Number 4.

 

Grandma, Veronica Ritchie, said: “She’s made up with the Numerjacks visit – she loves CBeebies programmes like this and to see her relax and smile is just great.

 

“It’s hard to keep the kids entertained in hospital despite all the toys and the TV so it’s brought a smile to her face and she’s been following number 4 all over the ward.”

 

Jeanette Sunderland, ward 2 play leader, added:  “It means a lot to the children when they get visits like this. They get all excited and it brightens up their day.

 

“Now Jadielle has gone off for her scan with a big smile on her face so it helps dispel any anxiety the children might have before their procedures.”
