Well, when Penny’s daughter was diagnosed with a life threatening condition the only place she could be treated was Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool – many miles away from her own home. The family were paying over a hundred pounds each day in taxi fares trying to visit her and arrange childcare for their other children.
Thankfully they were assessed as being eligible for free accommodation at RMH in the grounds of the hospital. This meant that they could all stay on site and so their daughter had her whole family around her and both parents could be with her during her scans and operation knowing that the other children were safe and cared for nearby by their grandmother.
Fortunately Penny’s daughter made a full recovery and was soon able to continue her care at home, I can only imagine how much more vital the free facilities at RMH become when a child requires long term admission or has an illness which is terminal.

The soup kitchen will be closed now for the summer, as all the poor dear urchins will be out on the streets selling lemonade for that monster Montmornecy, but I will see you all again in september and don’t forget, if you would like to come and visit me in the soup kitchen do drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange something for the autumn.
Until then, blessings on your brew my dears!
