Merry Christmas Musgrove!
Reception pupils at King’s Hall School embraced the season of giving this week by bringing festive cheer to young patients at Musgrove Park Hospital.
Accompanied by the Headmaster, Justin Chippendale, pupils Pip Pardoe, Ben Smith, Sophia Hildreth and Harper Peters, visited the hospital to see how their donation had helped to decorate the Children’s Day Surgery.
Upon arrival, the children were delighted to see an array of festive decorations, including mischievous toy elves, giant ribbons, and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. They were also thrilled to test out the surgery’s flashy toy car, which they took for a spin around the playroom.
After posing for photos in front of the tree, the children met Vanessa Knowles, Ward Manager of the Children’s Unit and Day Surgery, as well as Sister Sarah Garner, and Staff Nurse, Trudy Thomas. As a thank you for their donation, they each received a small present and some chocolate – both of which went down a treat!
Commenting on the visit, Sarah said: “The staff of the Children’s Day Surgery are very grateful for the generous donation of our Christmas tree, lights and decorations. It is a much brighter and festive place now. We even have elves above the beds, which have proved very popular with our patients!”
She added: “It was lovely to meet some of the children from King’s Hall and to show them our new decorations. We wish everyone at the school and all of our patients and their families a very Happy Christmas!”
