Saints legend set to kick off hospital's annual open day
Saints legend Francis Benali will kick off Southampton General Hospital’s annual open day on Saturday (27 September) before touring the site to meet staff, patients and visitors.
The event, which is now in its sixth year, will see more than 100 events, activities and information stands available to enable visitors to go behind the scenes of one of the country’s largest teaching hospitals.
People will be able to walk through a pair of giant inflatable lungs, watch a virtual autopsy and tour the operating theatres, as well as meet leading Cancer Research UK (CRUK) scientists, try on a pair of simulation specs to understand different eye conditions and meet the Pets as Therapy (PAT) dogs.
This year the charity team will be showing our presence at Southampton General Hospital and letting the public know what the money donated to the charity has been put towards, current fundraising projects and what we are looking to buy in the future.
Charity open day events:
- Children's passport trail
- Name the bear game
- Face painting
- Brass band
- Sweet stall
The open day will take place between 11.00am - 3.00pm on Saturday 27 September.
We want to say a HUGE thank you to Travelwise (the Trust travel department) who have given everyone FREE parking in the multi storey car park on the day.
