The children's ward at Furness General Hospital has benefited from a donation courtesy of a Freemasons charity.

Staff at Furness General Hospital have thanked the West Lancashire Mark Freemasons charity which funded the purchase of an upright waterless sensory tube.

The tube comes with a wall fitting and cushioned floor.

Jim Richards who is a representative of the charity said: "It was an easy decision to agree to provide the £1,300 to fund its purchase."
