Royal Patron gets creative
Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge visited Evelina London Children’s Hospital to meet children, young people and their families taking part in a creative arts workshop.
The sessions were led by the National Portrait Gallery as part of their Hospital Programme. The Duchess, who is Patron of both the National Portrait Gallery and Evelina London, joined in with groups of children in the atrium and Beach Ward.
Marian Ridley, Director of Evelina London, says: “Art is an invaluable therapy for children and young people while they are in hospital. It helps to develop their creativity and gives them something to enjoy, while reducing any anxieties they may be feeling.”
