A NEW breeze is cooling young hospital patients after specialist fans were donated to a children’s ward.

Businessman Andy Sparsis presented Worthing Hospital with five desk fans worth £1,000 for the hot weather.

Mr Sparsis, who owns The Fish Factory and The Food Restaurant in Worthing, is a patron of the Love Your Hospitals charity, which supports Worthing, Southlands Hospital in Shoreham and St Richard’s in Chichester.

Bluefin children’s ward manager, Rebecca Holcroft, said: “Children often come in with a very high temperature and they just want to feel cool.

“So to have the fans will make such a difference.”

Mr Sparsis said: “We’ve got some of the best hospitals in the world, not just in the UK, and I think local business has a big role in supporting them and the children.”

The charity welcomes sponsors. Email Nicola. godwin@wsht.nhs.uk, call 07825 256293 or visit www.loveyourhospital.org.
