Spreading festive joy with toys donation to children’s ward
Date: 19th Dec 2019
Kind-hearted staff at Bucks have spread some festive cheer by donating toys to the children’s ward at Wycombe Hospital.
Goodies including books, DVDs, toy figures, and painting kits were among the items handed to the hospital to share with children this Christmas, paid for through money raised from a quiz night.
Anne Swanborough, of Bucks New University’s Staff Association, said: “We can only imagine how difficult it is for children and their families to spend Christmas in hospital and we hope that these toys help put smiles on faces.
“It is a pleasure for us to support the hospital and to be able to give something back to the community at this time of year. Thank you to everyone who attended the quiz night and helped to pay for these presents.
“Thank you also to Philip Wentworth for all his support.”
Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust play specialist, Nicci, said: “Thank you on behalf of all the staff working in our paediatric day unit and outpatients area at Wycombe Hospital.
“Your generosity will help make life a little more comfortable and enjoyable for the young people and children who visit us.”
