Clatterbridge builds LEGO hospital as part of fund-raising for cancer centre
An innovative fund-raising idea from The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is helping to transform cancer care across Merseyside and Cheshire. As the charity looks forward to opening a new cancer hospital in the heart of Liverpool, it is building a replica made from 500,000 LEGO bricks. The money raised will support the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre which is scheduled to open this May.
Siemens Healthineers has donated funds to build three rooms of its Big LEGO Brick Hospital, including one PET and two CT scanning suites. Once complete, it will measure almost three metres high and include treatment machines, imaging equipment, hospital beds, medical equipment, staff, patients and everything else found in a hospital. For every pound donated, the charity will add another brick.
