Christmas came a week early for children on the Skylark Ward at Kettering General Hospital thanks to a toy donation drive led by local law firm, Bray & Bray.
Staff at Bray & Bray’s offices in Hinckley, Market Harborough and Corby and clients of the firm donated new toys and gifts to children on the Ward, in response to a wishlist of items compiled by staff and children and released last month.
The Skylark Ward is the purpose-built Children’s Ward at Kettering General Hospital and provides modern and comfortable facilities for children and their parents or carers.
This week, Andrew Hitchon, Partner and Head of the Wills, Trusts and Probate Department at Bray & Bray visited the Skylark Ward to hand deliver the Christmas gifts to the children, amongst them games, puzzles, colouring books, soft toys, arts and crafts supplies and Lego.
“We really wanted to support our local community and help spread some cheer this festive season,” explains Andrew Hitchon. “Thanks to the generosity of the Bray & Bray team and our clients, we were able to donate toys and gifts to the Skylark Ward. We hope the toys will bring joy to the children and a little Christmas cheer at what is a difficult time for them.”
Trisha Bridgen, Play Coordinator at the Skylark Ward added: “At this time of year, the Skylark Ward is extremely busy and so we appreciate each and every donation from our local community. The kindness of amazing donors like Bray & Bray means that every child on the Ward, from newborns to teenagers, will receive a gift this Christmas.”
