Making a big difference at Zoe’s Place

WOODEN Spoon Durham regional chairman Paul Tully and his wife Jayne recently visited Zoe’s Place Hospice, Middlesborough who recently received funding from Rugbytots for new special needs therapy cots.

The new cots have made a tremendous difference to families and staff.  The lying surface of the cots can be adjusted electrically to suit the needs of each child, enabling them to be fully supported, and giving more restful sleep. The height of the lying area can also be adjusted, providing easier access to the child by the carer.

Brian Waugh, Zoe’s Place branch co-ordinator said “I would like to thank Wooden Spoon and our local rugby family for helping the Hospice to continue to provide the best care we can for our babies.”
