A Breath of Air

ARTWORK is proving to be a breath of fresh air for respiratory patients after budding painters turned their talents to ward walls.

A host of sea scenes now brighten Ward 43 at Darlington Memorial Hospital after a project organised by respiratory support group Breathe Easy Darlington for pupils at Gurney Pease Academy.

The school-wide art competition was staged to help brighten ward 43 for patients and staff and to raise awareness among young people. They studied the respiratory system and and lung disease.

Pupils were given the themes under the water and up in the air, which both have links to lungs and breathing. 

They were joined by head boy, head girl, higher level teaching assistant and Chair of Breathe Easy Darlington in presenting the artwork to hospital staff.
