Primary school students have donated 80 Easter eggs to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) to say thank you to its staff.
Children at Brancaster Primary School took the chocolate eggs to school on World Book Day so they could raise money playing ‘Easter bingo’ later that month.
Before the children had the chance to raise money, the school cancelled the event due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Pupils Ryder and Harry, who are both aged six, said: “Although there are only 42 of us, we collected more than 80 Easter eggs.
“We are sending them to the hospital because they help people to get better and not get any bad things.
