Family fun day and health fair to celebrate NHS at 70

15 Jun 2018

The University of Leicester and the NHS Partnership Trusts it works with every day have invited the Leicester community to attend a FREE Family Day at the University’s main campus. The event, hosted by the University of Leicester, aims to raise awareness about the NHS and its wonderful gift to us, and encourage our children - the next generation - to value our healthcare system and support the NHS as it goes forward.

The event will also have stalls and demonstrations from the following:

  • Relaxation and well-being for children
  • Teddy Bear Hospital
  • Nutrition talks and demonstrations
  • Enter Edem performers
  • “Creation Station” crafts
  • First aid demos
  • Bouncy castles
  • Mini-health checks
  • Food stalls
  • STARS Youth Choir
  • “Creation Station” crafts
  • Face-painting

Teddy bear’s clinic

Children and their favourite stuffed animals are invited to join us for a Teddy Bear Clinic, a fun event that helps educate children about what happens in the doctor’s surgery. Each child’s stuffed animal is checked-in, then children take their animals in to meet with a medical student doctor for a check-up. Medical students will also be running mini-health checks for the teddy’s owners and their parents.
