Wrapped with love: Early Christmas surprise for Mount Druitt Hospital’s youngest patients

Christmas has come early for sick children at Mount Druitt Hospital thanks to the generosity of staff at Sydney Train’s Blacktown-Richmond Crew and Blacktown Signal Box.

Staff from Blacktown-Richmond Train Crew personally delivered 12 boxes of new toys for sick children at Mount Druitt Hospital.

Cricket sets, Wahu footballs, Disney Princesses and Barbies, a scooter, family games, arts and crafts and soft cuddly toys are among the many toys generously donated.

Blacktown-Richmond Train Crew Shift Supervisor Marian Patuki said: “We start our toy drive in October, and each year one staff member in particular, Colin Brown, goes above and beyond donating lots of toys that he has purchased throughout the year.”

Mount Druitt Hospital Children’s Ward Nurse Unit Manager Emily Campbell added Blacktown-Richmond Train Crew and Blacktown Signal Box staff have been long time supporters of Mount Druitt Hospital.

“We are grateful for their ongoing support and donations, and for bringing happiness and joy to our youngest patients this Christmas,” Emily said.
