Friday’s here! Yay! Traditionally, that means most of us get to have a bit of a laugh. The atmosphere in offices, schools and colleges tends to be a little more relaxed and we can all start to let our hair down a little bit as the weekend approaches.

But it’s not the same for everybody, unfortunately. If you’re in hospital, it’s generally no laughing matter. Especially if you’re young.

Kids don’t always understand what's going on and anybody in a white coat who insists on taking readings and writing notes all the time can be a bit intimidating. So that’s why the people at send in the Giggle Doctors.

This charity gets’ specially trained entertainers to dress up and visit sick children while they’re in hospital. Not only does this help pass the time it also helps youngsters to overcome their very understandable wariness of anybody in a uniform.

A great charity.
