We’re helping to bring some festive cheer to young patients who will be spending time over Christmas at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.
Our Bristol team have donated £500 to Ward 34 which looks after children who are receiving treatment for cancer, aged from birth up to about 12 years. The money is being spent on decorations to add some Christmas cheer to the unit.
Suzanne Allman, ward sister at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, says: “We are so pleased to have received this wonderful gift to make the ward look festive for our patients, families and staff.
“Christmas is a difficult time for families who spend it in hospital, and so we aim to make the ward as homely as possible.
“This fantastic donation has enabled us to do this, and we would like to say thank you.”
Charlie Joseph, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Bristol, says: “Wherever we build, we feel it’s important to forge good links with the local community and we are delighted to support the invaluable services provided by Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.
“Due to the conditions the children have, their time on the ward can range from just a few days up to several months, with some children in isolation unable to leave their cubicle.
“We are only too happy to do what we can to help the youngsters have as good a Christmas as possible.”
