Campus Support staff at the University helped deliver gifts to Alder Hey as part of the hospital’s Toy and Pyjama appeal.
Alder Hey Children’s Charity is one of the University’s Liv to Give charities. Gifts and donations from across the University were gathered at Bedford House before being delivered to Alder Hey by University staff.
Donated Toys and Pyjamas are for the children who have to spend this Christmas in Alder Hey Hospital. The toys are placed at the bottom of the children’s beds on Christmas Eve.
Raymond Breen from Campus Support Services, who helped to organise and deliver the gifts said: “My Grandaughter Skyler Spent the first year of her life in Alder Hey Hospital, which included Christmas. During this time I saw how much of an impact it has on the whole family when a loved one is taken ill. This is when I saw the effort Jessica Robinson and the Patient Experience Department put in to make the patients and their families stay as comfortable as possible.”
“ Campus Support Services as a team came up with the idea of collecting gifts to leave at the bottom of the beds for the children to wake up to on Christmas morning. This is our second Christmas collection and it has really taken off. The support we have received from the University of Liverpool Staff and Students has been overwhelming and I can’t thank everybody enough. I know the joy you are all going to bring to all the patients and families on Christmas morning and every one of you should feel so proud. Thank You from the bottom of my heart.”
The University and Alder Hey would like to thank all those who donated gifts this Christmas.
