Trailblazers auxiliary

Raising funds to support Developmental Medicine at The Royal Children's Hospital

Area: Brighton

THE STORY SO FAR

Trailblazers Auxiliary was founded in 2005 and supports Developmental Medicine at The Royal Children's Hospital, which treats and supports children with multiple disabilities and cerebral palsy.

WHAT WE ARE WORKING ON

Trailblazers Auxiliary raises funds through its work in the RCH Gift Shop and merchandise stalls in the hospital foyer. It also sells Entertainment Books as a fundraiser. With the assistance of funds raised by Trailblazers Auxiliary, the Developmental Medicine Department purchased the Griffiths Development Scales. Development scales measure gross motor skills, personal-social development, hand and eye coordination and performance, providing a general developmental quotient for each area of development, which is vital in assessing and understanding patients.
