Suzy Harvey — Lottery Legend

Following on from last week’s lovely legend Clare, we would like to introduce you to the amazing Suzy Harvey aka Dr Dovetail.

It’s not easy to make children in hospital smile. But the Theodora Children’s Charity do just that. Using a National Lottery grant the group delivered a giggle doctor programme which brings music, magic and laughter to children who are in hospital at Evelina London Children’s Hospital . The impact of giggle doctor Suzy Harvey’s work is amazing. We are so pleased to see Dr Dovetail bring smiles and laughter to the children at the hospital which is part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. We think she is a National Lottery legend.

When chatting about her work as giggle doctor Suzy said her aim is “to take them to a slightly more magical place where they can laugh and be silly and forget they are in hospital.”

Giggle doctors have the amazing ability to make a small difference to both parents and children’s lives when they are going through something difficult. They bring laughter and energy to an otherwise not so positive environment.

National Lottery funding gives them the ability to do one of the nicest and most rewarding jobs around. We are so proud to be able to support Suzy and all the other giggle doctors out there. Thanks Suzy for being a legend, and thank you National Lottery players for making all this possible.
