Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (MCHFT), in partnership with Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity, would like to say a huge thank you to the local community for the generous donations received over the recent festive period.

The Trust’s younger patients, based on the Child and Adolescent Unit (CAU) at Leighton Hospital, were provided with a number of toys, games and gifts thanks to donations by staff and customers of local businesses, as well as individuals. These included:

Other patients in the hospital also benefited from donations and activities such as ward-based parties and a number of choir performances.

Emma Robertson, MCH Charity Manager, said: “We are delighted that once again so many individuals, community groups and businesses have chosen to support their local hospital at Christmas time. 

Their gifts and donations really do make a difference to those who unfortunately find themselves in hospital at this time of year and we are very grateful to everyone who has supported us.”
