A Colchester hospital waiting room which is used by children has been transformed thanks to charitable donations.
The orthoptic waiting room at Essex County Hospital has been decorated and furnished with an animal theme. There is also a new TV, a bookshelf and pockets for colouring sheets.
Helen Lowbridge said the project had been triggered by responses to a patient survey.
The cost of the project was £450 and was paid for in part by a £200 donation from Asda after customers at its store in Turner Rise, Colchester, chose to support Colchester Hospitals Charity.
