Unwell children from Mount Druitt Hospital have been treated to a whopping six trolleys packed with toys to help make their hospital stay a little brighter.
The toys were delivered by Ward Angels, a not-for-profit community group run by volunteers whose mission is to make life in hospital as easy as possible for children, their families and staff.
With a focus on donating to paediatrics wards, Ward Angels have been predominately involved with Westmead, Ronald McDonald House and Bear Cottage. Originating in Stanhope Gardens, this will be their first donation to Blacktown and Mount Druitt hospitals.
WSLHD Fundraising and Events manager Sonia Hollands said the toys will be shared across paediatrics, social work, maternity, women’s health and the palliative care unit.
“We hope this is the first of hopefully many donations to us from the wonderful Ward Angels,” she said.
“We are so pleased with their extraordinary donation, our staff were thrilled when they saw so many trolleys coming through their ward.”
