Liverpool Daily Post.co.uk: “THE twits, The BFG, and the Witches were just some Roald Dahl’s unique gifts to the world. But his efforts to make the world a warmer, brighter place didn’t end with his death.
“A lesser known legacy of Dahl was the funding of a battalion of nurses equipped to lend specialist knowledge and support to children and parents affected by neurological conditions.
“And the pioneer of the Roald Dahl nurses scheme was Anne Sweeney, an epilepsy nurse specialist at Alder Hey. She’s patrolled the neurology ward, visited homes and schools and simply offered a friendly ear for thousands of parents with children with the condition for the past 15 years.”
