Every year, the children’s wards at Hull Royal Infirmary would normally be inundated with offers of chocolate treats for youngsters spending time in hospital. But this year, along with staff in the children’s departments, we asked kind-hearted donors to support the hospital’s WISHH Charity with a financial donation instead of Easter eggs, to enable the generosity to go further and wider.
Funds raised enabled us to purchase ‘Covid safe gifts’ for children of all ages from babies, toddlers, primary and secondary aged young people who will be staying on our wards over the Easter holiday period. This support also made a difference to patients being looked after in the Children’s Emergency Department, Eye Hospital, Anlaby Suite and other specialist areas.
Children were delighted to receive their gifts from the Easter Bunny which will last far longer than a chocolate egg could!
