UK Power Networks donate Easter eggs to West Suffolk Hospital’s Rainbow Ward
A four-year-old boy has been praised for donating an Easter egg to a collection for children on West Suffolk Hospital’s Rainbow Ward.
Oliver Phillips from Stowmarket said he had enough chocolate and wanted to help the infirmary in Bury St Edmunds.
He gave his egg to mum Kelly Seaton, who was participating in an appeal from her employer UK Power Networks. The firm collected 50 eggs, as well as sweets, games and colouring books, which were donated on Maundy Thursday (April 18).
Rainbow Ward sister Charlotte Skinner said: “We are going to start handing these out now and we are very grateful.
“The parents also appreciate things like this. If it wasn’t for companies like UK Power Networks we wouldn’t be able to do this. It’s this sort of kind act that can help make a child’s stay less scary and turn what can be a fairly horrible time into a far more positive experience.”
