CHILDREN at Scarborough hospital are tuning in to the benefits of a family’s fundraising efforts.

Every bed in the hospital’s children’s ward now has its own television and Play Station 3.

The move is a result of fundraising, initiated by the Harrison family.

Sarah and Paul Harrison set up Emma’s Fund in a bid to support the ward in memory of their daughter.

Tracey Cleminson, a play worker on the ward, said: “Mr and Mrs Harrison really started the ball rolling with the fundraising, and the outcome has been fantastic.

“Having a television for every child has made life a lot more easier, and has made the whole environment on the ward so much better.

“It means each patient can watch what they want to watch, and makes them a lot happier while in hospital.

“A big thank you to the Harrison family for all that they have done for us, it is very much appreciated.”
