Easter treats and smiles at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales
Children at the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales will be receiving some eggstra-special treats this Easter thanks to Caerleon Childcare and South Wales Police.
Caerleon Childcare made a plea for donations of Easter gifts to parents and staff at their Nursery in Llanishen to help bring a smile to the faces of children who would be spending time in hospital over the Easter period.
Kaye Knox, Childcare Manager at Caerleon Childcare, said: “We put out a plea to parents to help us bring chocolate eggs and gifts to children who would be in hospital over the Easter period. We have been completely overwhelmed by the response. We hope the Easter treats help to put a smile on their faces.”
Cardiff and Vale University Health Board’s On-Site Police Team, who have also been collecting donations from staff at the hospital, kindly gathered and helped distribute the eggs and Easter gifts around the wards.
PC Paul Archer, On-site Police Officer, said: “It’s been lovely to be involved in this collection, seeing how happy the children are to receive these gifts is really touching. I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped with this.”
Sarah Lloyd, Deputy Directorate Head of Operations and Delivery at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales, said: “I’d like to thank Caerleon Childcare and the Police for their hard work collecting gifts for the children in our care. It’s a very kind and thoughtful thing to do, which is greatly appreciated by the children.”
Nearly 400 eggs and Easter items were donated to be distributed to the Children’s Wards at the University Hospital for Wales and University Hospital Llandough.
