“We have served up 155,000 meals in The Oak Centre for Children and Young People’s two kitchens since it opened.

“We cook whatever our patients would like to eat, as their taste buds often change with treatment.

“We’re always looking at new ways to encourage patients to eat, such as hosting parties for the younger children and brunches – over 170 to date – for the teenagers.”
