Chewbacca believe it!

The children on our Children's Ward at Calderdale Royal Hospital had a very special visit from characters from Star Wars and Spiderman .

Anthony Theabould who is a Cos Play character got together with others to bring smiles to the children on the ward and to hand out toys, colouring books and T- shirts.

 Anthony said: "I Cos Play as a character of Spiderman and the Terminator for charities, comic conventions and children’s surprise birthday visits. I do this simply for fun, see people smile and have photos taken.”

Hospital Play Specialist, Karen Foster, said "It's great to be able to do things like this for the children who are in our hospital. To see their reactions and see them laughing, is lovely and it allows them to forget about being in hospital. The characters were amazing. Parents are grateful as well saying how good it is to be able to do this and think it’s a wonderful idea."
