Children being treated on the ward- as well as young people at Chorley and South Ribble Hospital and Leyland’s Broadoaks Child Development Centre – were still able to have a cracking time thanks to the donation of hundreds of chocolate eggs and Easter craft kits by the local community.
Among those tucking in on the childrens’ ward was two-year-old Reggie Greenwood, of St Michael’s on Wyre.
Reggie’s mum, Joanne Greenwood, said: “Not how we’d planned spending our Easter but Reggie was thrilled with his Easter egg for breakfast.”
Those who donated included UCLan’s rugby team, motorbike enthusiasts, building society and supermarket staff.
Roya Armstrong, fundraising manager for Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Charity, who helped to collect the Easter treats, said: “We would like to thank everyone who donated an Easter gift.”
