Children ‘Eggstatic’ by Donations to Ward

Easter5More than 500 Easter eggs have been donated by local businesses to children in New Cross Hospital over the Easter break.

Nova Training, Flame Lilly Healthcare, J9 Accommodation, Lloyds Banking Group and Tesco were just some of the businesses who kindly handed over some chocolaty treats to youngsters on the children’s ward.

The children were also delighted to receive a visit from the Easter bunny and Pikachu as part of Nova Training’s annual visit to the ward.

Some Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies were also given to the neonatal ward and community patients.

Jeff James, from Nova Training, said: “We wanted to give something to the children who have to be in hospital around Easter time, and we also wanted to bring a smile to their faces by bringing along the Easter bunny and Pikachu to give out the Easter eggs.

“We smashed last year’s number of donations and donated 213 eggs, which was amazing.

“We were shocked that we received as many donations as we did, but it’s a sign that people are willing to help a worthy cause like this. Hopefully next year we will have even more.

“It was great to see all the children’s smiling faces when they met the characters as well.”

Leanna Bood, fundraising co-ordinator for The Royal Wolverhampton Trust, added: “We are very thankful for such generous deliveries to the children on the ward.

 “We’ve been inundated by donations this Easter and we are very grateful. Thank you to anyone who donated an Easter egg or chocolate treat for our youngest patients.”
