£12 could pay for a Worry Monster for Ocean Ward at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. A Worry Monster is a soft toy that children can "feed" their worries to through a slot in the mouth. Parents and hospital staff can then look at these to ensure a child's worries and concerns are addressed. 

Jo Caseley, Oncology Play Specialist at the hospital, said: “These resources will ensure children get the best preparation for radiotherapy and their treatment journey.

“At a time when NHS funding is stretched, the play department receives very little funding towards preparation equipment. Parents and carers are less anxious if they can see their children coping well.”
