Hospital launches kitchen appeal
Parents of young patients at a hospital in Leicester are helping to launch a huge fundraising campaign to build two new kitchens there.

In June the Leicester Royal Infirmary recieved complaints about the standard of food in the children's ward.

The 300,000 campaign was launched after the hospital trust admitted it needed new kitchens - but did not have the funds to build them.

Managers said it will be spent in consultation with parents.

Fundraising manager Robert Myers said: "The Children's Choice campaign requires 300,000. We've had an initial sum of 86,000 from the Trust, but we need to pay that money back."

The next step will be to refit two new kitchens on the ward, a move expected to be completed by September.
