One of the GoGoGorillas has found a new home - greeting youngsters arriving at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s children’s department.
Seven-year-old Isaac Betts has been a patient of Dr Nandu Thalange, a consultant paediatrician at the Jenny Lind Children’s Department since birth. And his father Liam, managing director of Gasway, donated the Catch Me While You Can gorilla to the department, after he successfully bid for it at the recent auction.
His company had sponsored the gorilla as part of the GoGoGorilla trail in Norwich city centre this summer to raise funds and awareness for Break and the Born Free Foundation.
Emma Dolman, matron for children’s services said “We are very grateful to Liam and Gasway for donating the “Catch Me While You Can” gorilla to us – it will be such a lovely welcome for our patients when visit the Jenny Lind Children’s Department.”
