News and events
DABKA recently purchased a selection of games and past times for in-patients to use during their stay in hospital. Let's hope they will help patients to pass the time away.
So the first prize winner in the under 7yrs category was this splendid effort by Bailey aged 5. All winners will be contacted by Dabka to collect a small prize. Many thanks to all who took part in the competition and well done to our winners.
This one was the winner for the under 15yrs category and was beautifully done by Maisie aged 13.
Here are the results for the recent competition held in the renal unit. For the 15yrs and over, the winner was Linda.

World Kidney Day 2017
World Kidney Day 2017 was celebrated in Doncaster Royal Infirmary with a brilliant presentation by Becky Stevenson and Sarah Childs, two of the wonderful nurses on the renal ward 32 who together held an information and educational display outside of the hospital restaurant.
They did free blood pressure checks and provided information on healthy eating, diet, exercise and diabetes related items.
They invited DaBKA to attend to showcase what we do for patients and their families.
The day was a great succsess, many people stopped and asked questions, and had blood pressure checks, some were suprised with the results, and even the renal consultants took part too!
If you have any other event organised, please let us know and we will put in on the website.
