This well-travelled Shaun has been on an epic journey around Bristol's hospitals! From the Children's Hospital itself to the Dental Hospital, the Eye Hospital to the Audiology Department, he has visited children undergoing appointments and short-stay procedures, gathering a colourful hand or footprint from each! He even received a very special, tiny footprint from a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St. Michael's Hospital.
