Digital Cameras, Papers and Printers for PICU ‘recovery through art’ group

Several of our patients have been requesting for us to establish a photography group. We would like to be able to use digital photography in a therapeutic and mindful manner, within our gardens and out in the community. We would love to be able to get 2-3 digital cameras (14 bedded unit), a printer and some photographic paper to enable us to use photos in our popular 'recovery through art' group, in collages and display boards. Enabling patients in this way will be beneficial for engaging them in art and for getting them out and within the local area.
