Staff and residents at Sedgley Court care home in Dudley have donated a chocolate egg to every child who spent their Easter weekend in Russells Hall Hospital.
Donating 40 Easter eggs in total, Sedgley Court Activity Co-ordinator, Nadine Wilkes, and resident, Valerie Roberts, delivered the treats to the hospital.
Valerie was very happy to hand over the eggs, and said she ‘felt very special in taking the donations, because Easter is all about the children.’
Home Manager at Sedgley Court, Kim Dean, operated by Ideal Carehomes, hopes to continue to offer support to the children at Russells Hall Hospital. Kim said:
‘We will be supporting the hospital with other themed events, providing some arts and crafts materials to keep the children busy while they’re on the ward.’
The Easter eggs were gratefully accepted by Sharnie Whitehouse, a member of the Play Team at the hospital. Sharnie said:
‘The children absolutely loved the eggs, their faces lit up on Sunday morning. It made such a difference to their stay. We put an Easter trolley together with the eggs on and took it round for them to choose from. We also used them for children having procedures, as a well done for being so brave throughout their treatment!’
