The Hunts Post is this week launching its Christmas present appeal for children who have to spend the festive period in hospital.

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, a 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.

INFO: The Hunts Post is at 30 High Street, Huntingdon. Presents should be wrapped but include a note to say what is inside.
