Security firm gives presents to Norwich’s Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital
Sick children who are too unwell to go home from hospital this Christmas are to be cheered up with presents thanks to a Norwich business.
Children at the Jenny Lind Children's Hospital at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital will each receive a gift on December 25, thanks to the donation of new toys from Broadland Guarding Services.
Employees at the security company, based in Vulcan Road North, have bought and wrapped more than 30 presents.
The donation of more than �300 of toys means there is enough for one present per bed on the ward so that every child spending Christmas in hospital will receive an extra surprise.
Emma Dolman, senior nurse in paediatrics, said: 'We are very grateful to Broadland Guarding Services for thinking about the children who find themselves in hospital over Christmas and thank them on their behalf for this generous donation. It will make such a difference to our patients, which can be a difficult time as they should be at home with their families.'
