A soft cuddly toy works wonders for youngsters facing treatment in the children’s ward at Hereford County Hospital and Hereford Lions Club has just answered a plea for more with a delivery of 100 little teddies.
Sister Lynne Butler said: “Coming into hospital can be quite upsetting for babies and young children and we have found that giving them the opportunity to choose a cuddly toy helps settle them. We were running low and are grateful to Lions Club for their donation which will delight 100 of our young patients. Gifts of soft toys are always welcomed.”
Said Lions Club president Colin Smith, “Lions has a long association with the children’s ward, especially on Christmas Day morning when we escort Santa to deliver presents to those children in hospital over the festive period. Seeing the smile on their faces when Santa walks in is very special and I am sure these teddies will also help turn tears into smiles.”
