A charity has donated eight iPad minis to the oncology services at Leeds Children’s Hospital.

The new iPad library, from children’s cancer charity Ben’s Heroes Trust, will provide a range of benefits for young patients, including distraction therapy, educational videos, and helping them keep in touch with family and friends.

Ben’s Heroes Trust, in Hampshire, was founded in memory of Ben Loyns, who tragically died of cancer in 2010 aged nine. The donation of the iPad mini library means that youngsters being treated within the children’s cancer services will be able to maintain vital social links with family and friends during long hospital stays.
