Here at Spencer Clarke Group, we are passionate about helping out in the community where we can.
When we found out that some of the children receiving care at Blackpool Victoria Hospital wouldn't be able to spend Christmas Day at home this year, we really wanted to spread some festive cheer for them! (Some of the children can be discharged in time for Christmas day but some of the poorlier children have to remain within the hospital.)
We have been channeling our inner Christmas elves to compile a haul of gifts to be sent to the children.
The gifts being delivered include books, puzzle books, games, crafts and teddies and they have all been sourced with the intention of keeping the children occupied and entertained during their time within the hospital.
The team at Spencer Clarke Group were advised that teenagers and toddlers don’t receive as many donations so they have ensured that these age groups were well catered for.
On Christmas morning, our gifts, along with gifts from other well wishers, will be hand delivered by Santa himself.
Blackpool Victoria Hospital is home to a children’s and an adolescent ward, where they care for young people who require medical attention.
For some families, the hospital is like a second home, which is why we have been so passionate about making one of the most exciting days of the year, as happy as possible for the young patients!
“It’s unfathomable what some of these children have to go through at such a young age; hopefully the gifts will help to put a smile on the children’s faces this Christmas,” said Managing Director, Mike Shorrock.
