The Ama­zon Ward at the hospi­tal, in Bret­ton Gate, re­ceived the six mi­cro-scoot­ers this week, two of which are suit­able for chil­dren aged one or above, two are suit­able for those aged three to five years old and two which can be used by chil­dren aged from six to 12.

The do­na­tion has been made by Mi­cro Scoot­ers Ltd, an Es­sex-based firm which sup­plies and sells chil­dren’s scoot­ers, as part of its Mi­cro Scoot­ers UK Scheme, which aims to work with ev­ery chil­dren’s hospi­tal through­out the UK.

Zoe Wilkinson, play ser­vice co­or­di­na­tor at the hospi­tal, said: “We are de­lighted to ac­cept these scoot­ers for our hospi­tal as we can en­sure out­door play is ac­ces­si­ble.

“They will be in­valu­able in pro­vid­ing a dis­trac­tion and act as an aid to the chil­dren’s re­cov­ery.”

The hospi­tal will also re­ceive rib­bons and other ac­ces­sories for their new scoot­ers.
