Spread a little festive cheer with Hunts Post’s Holly Ward appeal

Dozens of presents have been donated in the few short weeks since The Hunts Post launched its Christmas present appeal for children who have to spend the festive period in hospital.
But we’d like to see even more!
The appeal is simple: we are asking readers to dig a little deeper and add one more present to their Christmas shopping list for our Buy a Gift campaign in aid of Holly children’s ward at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
For children on the Holly Ward, festive fun can be a little harder to come by from the confines of their hospital bed.
The 19-bed ward caters for children aged up to 17 who are cared for by a staff of 30 that includes qualified nurses and support workers, as well as eight consultants.

You can make that day a little bit more special by simply picking up an extra book, toiletries set, game, DVD or toy and dropping it into The Hunts Post and we’ll make sure the Christmas cheer at Holly Ward stretches a little further this year.
Editor of The Hunts Post, Stefan Bartlett, said: “We had a fantastic response to this appeal last year and I am sure 2015 will be no different. These presents will make a real difference for children on Holly Ward.”
