Charlton Lane Hospital in Cheltenham recently enjoyed a flying visit from Gerald, Henry and Wally from Walks with Hawks.
Clare arrived with her beautiful birds of prey at Mulberry Ward, where patients, carers and colleagues took turns to don the glove and have Gerald, Henry and Wally fly over to them to feed.
The interactive experience, organised by Charlton Lane’s Engagement, Activity and Physical Health (EAP) team, was really well received by patients, carers and colleagues alike, who enjoyed the opportunity to get up close and personal with some truly beautiful birds of prey.
EAP and Carers’ Lead Helen Babbage-Peart said: “This was a great experience that helped our patients and carers come together, interact and engage with each other. It was so lovely to see so many smiling faces.
“Huge thanks to Clare from Walks with Hawks and to our colleagues at Charlton Lane, who came together to fundraise to ensure this event could go ahead.”
