We all know that the people working in our hospitals are superheroes, but none of the young patients at Queen Mary’s Hospital for Children quite expected a visit from this fantastic four!
Superman, Spider-man, Batman, and Robin all leapt into action to visit the dedicated children’s hospital based at St Helier, abseiling down the building to clean the windows and swing past to wave hello to the patients and staff inside.
St Helier’s paediatric matron, Nikki Sancroft, said patients and staff were thrilled to have a visit from the caped crusaders:
“Queen Mary’s is a big building, so we knew we were going to need some specialist help with our spring cleaning, but we didn’t think we would be lucky enough to book the best wall-climbers in the business!
“All of the children have been really excited to meet the superheroes and it’s raised a real cheer. The little things can make a really big difference when it comes to caring for our younger patients, so it’s lovely to have something as fun as this for them to focus on.
“The superheroes have done a fantastic job interacting with the children, and they’ve also done a fabulous job on the windows! I think Spider-Man got the hang of it the fastest, but then again, he’s probably the most used to climbing up and down buildings isn’t he?”
All of the day’s activities were coordinated by the hard-working staff at the trust, and the window cleaning itself was carried out by Antac Support Services.
