Princess Beatrice visits the  Sick Kids Friends Foundation , Thursday, Aug 21, 2014

Staff and patients at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh were delighted to receive a visit from their Royal Patron HRH Princess Beatrice yesterday, who came to officially open the new £550, 000 Gamma Camera funded by SKFF.

The Princess had a chance to meet with patients currently benefitting from the new machine as well as seeing some of the projects that the Sick Kids friends Foundation have funded since her last visit in 2013. These included the Secret Garden interactive therapy installation, the new Wayfinding Scheme and gorgeous artwork created by Illustrator in Residence Cate James. Princess Beatrice was also shown the impressive designs for the new childrens hospital, due for completion in 2017.

David Reith, Chair of the Trustees of SKFF said:

“As we continue to look towards a new era for the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh and the Sick Kids Friends Foundation, it is fantastic to have the full support of the Princess and to share our vision for the future with her.”
