Brighton club PRYZM has shown its community spirit with an £8,490 donation for a ventilator to help children in hospital with respiratory problems.
Damian King, general manager of the Kingswest venue, made the presentation to the Rockinghorse charity to buy the specialist equipment for the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital to aid faster recovery.
Damian said: “The donation is from our company’s Echo Trust charity to give something back to our local community. We hold regular collections at the club and our customers are always generous. We nominated this cause to benefit because of its amazing work to help sick children.”
Terrina Barnes, corporate fundraising manager at Rockinghorse, said: “We are so very grateful for the generous donation thanks to funds raised by PRYZM nightclub and their customers. Their donation will enable us to purchase a brand-new ventilator for the High Dependency Unit at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton that will benefit the most poorly children admitted to the ward.
“The non-invasive state-of-the-art ventilation system will be used in the treatment of young patients with respiratory conditions, and its success rate means that young patients are recovering quicker and will most likely have a shorter stay in hospital.”
PRYZM is part of The Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator of late night bars and clubs, which employs 3000 people across its 54 venues. Since 2002 when Deltic set up the Echo Trust it has raised more than £2.5 million to grant awards to local children’s charities and children’s hospitals.
