Fes­tive do­na­tion for ward

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - 24 Hours -

YOUNG pa­tients at Peter­bor­ough City Hos­pi­tal’s Ama­zon Ward are in for a Christ­mas to re­mem­ber thanks to a lo­cal housebuilder.

Peter­bor­ough-based Per­sim­mon Homes East Mid­lands handed over a sack of presents to pa­tients to help en­ter­tain them dur­ing their stay in hos­pi­tal.

Zoe Wilkin­son, play ser­vices co-or­di­na­tor for the ward, said: “It was a thought­ful ges­ture and will cer­tainly make a dif­fer­ence to all of the chil­dren who will be spend­ing Christ­mas in hos­pi­tal.”

Ch­eryl Bissett, sales di­rec­tor for Per­sim­mon Homes East Mid­lands, added: “Any­one who is fit and healthy prob­a­bly takes for granted the fact that they are able to wake up in their own home on Christ­mas morn­ing, how­ever not ev­ery­one is this lucky.

“We want to en­sure that the chil­dren who will be wak­ing up on the Ama­zon Ward are able to en­joy a bit of nor­mal­ity. which is so im­por­tant.”
