The children's ward at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire has been given a makeover.

Thirty thousand pounds has been pumped into equipping the room with a huge variety of educational toys.


The work has been carried out by Merlin's Magic Wand, a charity set up by the Merlin Entertainments Group, the global operator of some of the world's most famous leisure attractions, including Alton Towers Resort.
