Easter gifts for children in hospital
Children at Sandwell Hospital will be enjoying Easter eggs donated by Sandwell officers today after we dropped off a bumper-load of chocolate last week.
Officers in the borough delivered almost 100 Easter eggs to the Children’s Unit at Sandwell General Hospital last Friday (26 March) so that they could be kept in quarantine ready to brighten up the children’s Easter weekend.
Officers and staff from Sandwell Police, and other departments, donated the Easter eggs and then, alongside our partners at Queens Square Shopping Centre and West Bromwich Bid, delivered the eggs whilst out on patrol.
The Easter eggs, big and small, will be enjoyed by children who will be staying on the ward over Easter. The leftover eggs will be given to Tommy’s Baby Charity.
Partnerships Officer Jess Redmond, who helped coordinate the donation, said: “Many children who are staying in hospital in Sandwell this Easter won’t be able to spend time with all of their loved ones over the Easter weekend.
“I hope this brings a smile to those children’s faces, and the hard-working NHS staff who are caring for them.
“I would like to thank each and every one of my colleagues who were involved."
