Comfy Spread a Smile with Sound Asleep Pillows

by Hayley Wilkinson|20th January 2016

Here at Comfy we enjoy doing our bit for charity. What makes this even more rewarding is when we get to see the results. Last year we donated hundreds of our Sound Asleep Pillows to children’s charity, Spread a Smile. This charity is dedicated to improving the time spent by seriously ill children in hospital. The charity’s aim is to divert attention away from patient’s treatments by stimulating their minds and alleviating boredom. Our Sound Asleep pillows helped to keep the children entertained while they relaxed in bed and listened to their favourite music.

University College London Hospital were sent the pillows just before the Christmas period in 2015 and commented: “I just wanted to send a huge thank you on behalf of UCLH for the donation of Sound Asleep Pillows over the Christmas period. These have been the perfect gift for our patients, especially the older school age and teenage age range. This has been the perfect gift for patients in hospital as when they are feeling unwell they often want to rest and relax with some music of their choosing. The other amazing thing about the pillows is that if a patient is using it whilst trying to fall asleep, if they are sharing a bed/room with a parent/sibling or are in an open bedded bay on the ward, no one else can hear the music playing. In the radiotherapy department, we have been giving these pillows out as end of treatment gifts to our patients completing a course of radiotherapy, and they have all loved them! The pillows are such a unique and appropriate gift to offer patients during such a difficult time. Once again, thank you for your kindness and generosity.”
