Spencer Clarke Group donates Christmas gifts to children at Blackpool Victoria Hospital
Preston-based recruitment agency Spencer Clarke Group is spreading the Christmas cheer by donating gifts to the children’s ward at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.
As some of the children receiving care at the hospital won't be able to spend Christmas day at home with their families, the team compiled a haul of gifts in the hope that it would bring a smile to their faces during a challenging period.
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, the 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 Spencer Clarke Group have been so passionate about making one of the most special days of the year as magical 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.
