To ensure that the staff and patients at Hinchingbrooke Hospital still get to enjoy their Easter despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, David Wilson Homes has donated more than 100 Easter eggs to help make the celebration extra special.
The donation comes as part of a thank you to the NHS staff in Huntingdon who continue to work tirelessly on the frontline throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Many of the eggs will also be gifted to the children’s ward and beyond to help bring a smile to any patients at the hospital.
A range of Easter eggs were donated, including large, small, white chocolate, milk chocolate, as well as a range for anyone who may be vegan or lactose intolerant.
Zoe Wilkinson, Play Service Co-ordinator at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Being in Hospital at any time isn't great for any child and we do all we can to ensure their time with us is as enjoyable as it can be. The fantastic donation of Easter eggs from David Wilson Homes will definitely put a smile on the children's faces, thank you so much.”
John Dillon, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “As the NHS continues to work harder than ever, we hope that our donation will help to bring the hospital staff a bit of joy this Easter.
“The donation will also hopefully help to cheer up any patients who have to visit the hospital over the Easter period.
“As a leading homebuilder, it is important to us to help support the local communities where we build.”
David Wilson Homes has already helped 1,000 NHS workers across the UK to buy their own homes with their deposit contribution scheme, saving them more than £10m in the process.
