This week, we’ve been spreading festive cheer in the shape of gifts and The Grinch inspired decorations at The Children’s Unit at The Countess of Chester Hospital. Spending time in hospital can be a difficult and worrying time for children and their families, especially at Christmas – a time where most of us look forward to being at home with our loved ones.
With that in mind, we made it our mission to create the best possible experience for children and their families spending time in hospital over the festive period. A significant amount of planning went into transforming the ward into a world of Dr Seuss, spearheaded by a social media campaign encouraging people to get involved with our Christmas gift appeal.
We are delighted to have played a small part in making the time spent in hospital a little brighter for the children and their families over Christmas. We had an amazing response to our gift appeal, and we’d like to thank those who have donated – everyone has been extremely generous, and this has truly been such a rewarding experience.
