We were delighted to visit the Morrisons store in Sittingbourne to receive a cheque from the Morrisons Foundation for £21,738.
The money will be used to buy a state-of-the-art camera system for our South East London hospice in Eltham, similar to the one we already have at Demelza Kent.
The camera system is designed to give parents peace of mind that their children are being monitored and cared for at all times.
While not a replacement for personal contact, the systems do mean that staff can get on with other duties in between scheduled visits, knowing that the children are being monitored at all times.
The cameras also allow spot checks to be made on children without disturbing them if asleep or resting and are sound sensitive, so if a child calls out or has a vocal seizure the camera system will alert staff in the office.
The cameras can be turned off for privacy when changing a child, or if the family is present. Older children can decide if they wish to have the camera on or off.
