Treats for child patients
Published on: 30 Apr 2014
SOME of the last children to be treated at Frenchay Hospital received some Easter cheer thanks to customers of Sainsbury's in Emersons Green.
Shoppers and the store chain donated Easter eggs which were given to inpatients in the Barbara Russell Children's Unit, children attending A&E and wards for clinics and dressing changes over the holiday weekend.
Play assistant Kate Derrick said: “Donations such as these make a huge difference to the families on our ward, helping to normalise their stay and bring a smile to their faces during what is often a tough time. This would not have been possible without you.”
The children's A&E at Frenchay is closing on May 7 and moving to the children's hospital, as is the Barbara Russell unit.
