Young patients at Andy's are set to benefit.
Andy's has benefited from a BBC Children In Need grant.
In its first funding round of 2017, BBC Children in Need has announced new grants totalling £83,694 to two projects working in Grimsby. The grants will be shared amongst projects providing services to disadvantaged children and young people in the area. The news means that the Charity now has more than £342,000 invested across North and North East Lincolnshire.
We have been awarded £15,120 to provide equipment and a play surface for children and young people who have life-limiting illnesses and use the hospice. The funding will provide a place for children of all abilities to play, and will enable the siblings of the children in the hospice to spend time together in an inclusive, safe and stimulating outdoor environment.
The other local project is Foresight (North East Lincolnshire), which has been awarded £68,574, delivered over three years, to provide weekend and school holiday activities to disabled children and young people.
Isabel Farnell, BBC Children in Need Regional Head of the North, said: “We are delighted to be supporting organisations such as Foresight and Andy's. Over the coming months, these projects will work with the young people in the local area that need it most and a make a tangible difference to their lives.”
