Northamptonshire based business Matthew Oliver has helped make Christmas wishes come true for youngsters spending the festive season in hospital.
The Matthew Oliver team helped make the season merrier for the many young patients who will wake up on Christmas day morning on children’s wards in Northamptonshire hospitals.
Every year Hannington based big-hearted business Matthew Oliver Windows & Doors treat young patients to gifts on their Christmas present wish lists. They source and purchase toys on the wish lists and deliver the piles of presents to the hospitals, so the youngest patients have something special to unwrap on December 25th.
Estelle Douglas, Office Manager at Matthew Oliver Windows & Doors, who helps to deliver the gifts to the local hospitals, said:
“Each year we receive a wish list from the nursing teams working on the children’s wards with details of the toys and gifts the children are hoping to receive at Christmas.
“This year we extended our gift giving to provide toys for children spending Christmas at Northampton General Hospital and Kettering General Hospital. It is lovely that we’re able to do something to help make the children’s Christmas special.”
Health Play Specialist Co-Ordinator Claire Green from Skylark Ward at Kettering General Hospital said:
“We would like to say a very big thank you, to everyone who has helped contribute to donating gifts for our children and young people on Skylark Ward, especially in these times financially.
“This donation means that staff can help keep the spirit of Christmas high by being able to provide gifts for our patients throughout the festive season. This means the world to patients and their families, and we are honoured to see the big smiles on everyone’s face when Father Christmas makes a special visit on Christmas morning to hand over your gifts through your generosity.”
