Amateur photographer Chris Eastty from Leigh-on-Sea has donated a number of his pictures of Southend to his local hospital.
Chris who works at Southend Hospital as an Emergency Department Assistant was approached by colleagues to display his work on the wards.
“I was a little shocked to be asked, but was more than happy to donate my images. It’s an honour to help cheer patients up and give them something different to look at rather than plain walls. It’s great to see the pieces of work up and patients and visitors taking time to look at them and help spark conversation.”
“These are places that people know and the great thing is that it is really helping to spark not just conversations but fond memories in many of our elderly patients, many who are suffering dementia. So it is a wonderful way to help bring back some of that person as they recount memories sparked by those pictures, we really can’t thank Chris enough for allowing us to display them.”
