Our very own team of elves has been busy collecting toys for children facing Christmas in hospital.
Staff from across our offices in Sheffield, Rotherham, Dronfield and Bakewell have donated more than 50 festive gifts, to be distributed among inpatients at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
The presents we have donated range in suitability from baby to teenager, boys and girls and will be handed out by hospital staff on Christmas Day. The collection, led by head of human resources, Sharna Poxon, follows our support of The Children’s Hospital Charity’s snowflake appeal, enabling the organisation to spread some cheer across the city.
Sharna said: “This initiative has been a pleasure to organise and I can’t thank my colleagues enough for their generosity. As a parent myself, I am extremely grateful that Sheffield Children’s Hospital is located on our doorstep and that we benefit from the specialist care it provides. I can only imagine how tough it is for children who have to spend Christmas in hospital – particularly this year when visiting is restricted – and I hope the gifts we have donated go some way to brightening their day.”
