Festive donation for ward
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.”
