Liq­uid’s an as­set to the com­mu­nity

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE group be­hind Liq­uid night­club in Uxbridge has helped fund new equip­ment at Hilling­don Hos­pi­tal’s pae­di­atric unit.

Echo Trust, a char­ity cre­ated by Deltic Group Ltd with the pur­pose of help­ing sick chil­dren and young adults, do­nated £3,360 to Hilling­don Hos­pi­tals NHS Foun­da­tion Trust.

The char­ity pro­vides grants for es­sen­tial med­i­cal equip­ment us­ing do­na­tions raised at its bars and clubs.

Liq­uid night­club nom­i­nated the trust’s pae­di­atric unit to re­ceive this do­na­tion.

Beth Rogers, man­ager of Liq­uid, said: “The do­na­tion is a way of giv­ing back to our lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“We hold reg­u­lar col­lec­tions at the club and we nom­i­nated the hos­pi­tal to ben­e­fit be­cause of the amaz­ing work it does to help sick chil­dren and their fam­i­lies.”

Hilling­don Hos­pi­tal will now be able to buy two cru­cial pieces of equip­ment for their pae­di­atric ward.

The first is an oxy­gen sat­u­ra­tion mon­i­tor, which will be used on a daily ba­sis, to de­ter­mine if chil­dren are hav­ing dif­fi­culty breath­ing or main­tain­ing their body oxy­gen lev­els.

The sec­ond piece of equip­ment to be pur­chased will be a pa­tient con­trolled anal­ge­sia ma­chine, which al­lows chil­dren to safely ad­min­is­ter their own pain re­lief when they need it.
