A young patient had the honour of switching on the Christmas tree lights at Medway Maritime Hospital on Friday 2 December.
Three-year-old Kenzie Prevett, who has had complex needs since birth, was most recently an inpatient on Dolphin Ward after suffering seizures and an infection. He was accompanied during the switch-on by his twin Stevie, mum Sara, dad Steve and siblings Scott, 23, Kodie, 20, Kelsie, 16 and Kaylee, three months.
Medway NHS Foundation Trust’s Chair Jo Palmer, who was at the lights switch-on, said: “It is great to see the magic of Christmas arrive here at Medway. I would like to thank young Kenzie who did such a brilliant job of turning the lights on for us.” “I would also like to thank our two sponsors for donating the Christmas trees and decorations this year, as well as all the other people behind the scenes who work to make our annual Christmas tree lights switch-on happen.”
This year, the tree, which has been installed in one of the hospital’s courtyards, was kindly supplied by Vertiv, which services the hospital’s generators.
