Special delivery made to Bassetlaw Hospital’s Children’s Ward

The Children’s Ward at Bassetlaw Hospital received a special delivery of toys and games last week for children spending time in hospital over the festive period.

The Mullen family from Worksop have been delivering Christmas gifts to Bassetlaw Hospital for over 20 years and this year have brought 70 items worth over £1,000, ranging from toys for tots, through to gadgets for teenagers.

The family said: “We are great supporters of Bassetlaw Hospital, whose staff have cared for so many members of our family over the years.  This is our way of giving back and saying thank you to the wonderful team.  We do this over the festive period to make things a little brighter for any children who have to visit hospital.”

Anne Bacon, Play Leader, said: “Once again we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the Mullen family who have been supporting the hospital for many years.  These presents will put a smile on the faces of our young patients this Christmas and hopefully will make their time in hospital that little more enjoyable.”
