Rosanne Norman, Health play specialist at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals commented, “Thank you to the Gruffalo for visiting the Children on the ward, it’s been an extra special afternoon with lots of smiles not just from the children but their families and all the team on the ward. Some children find it hard being in hospital so close to Christmas so this was a lovely surprise.” For further information about The Gruffalo & Friends Clubhouse Blackpool to book tickets, visit:
