£1000 worth of Magformers donated to Milton Keynes University Hospital

Magformers has donated over £1,000 worth of its award-winning building sets to the children’s ward at Milton Keynes University Hospital.

The firm – recognised as one of the UK’s fastest growing toy companies – agreed to help the ward provide children with a selection of toys after being contacted by the hospital’s Play Specialist, Laura Clarke.

Clarke was looking to provide Magformers sets for children to use while receiving care on the ward. Magformers’ managing director, David Kelly made the delivery in person.

“As a parent, I appreciate how difficult it can be when children are in hospital at any time for the patients as well as their families, but especially so around Christmas,’ said Kelly.

“Hopefully, the sets of Magformers we have donated will make their stay in hospital a little more bearable and give them something fun to do while they are there.”

Play Specialist, Laura Clarke, added: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Magformers UK for its kind donation and to David for visiting the paediatric ward at Milton Keynes University Hospital.

“It has made a real difference to our unit and our patients and their siblings have really enjoyed the sets supplied. As a Play Team we aim to provide ways of distraction, often during difficult times, and the product is ideal for this.

“It also gives an opportunity for normalised play and to promote development.”
