Easter Egg HandoutComments Off on Easter Egg Handout
Nottingham City Branch decided to give local children on wards D33 and D34 at Queens Medical Centre – Nottingham University Hospitals a special treat over the Easter period. They purchased Easter Eggs for poorly children who weren’t able to come out of hospital this Easter, to spend time with their families.
Senior workplace representatives Debbie Williams and Helen Wright handed out Easter Eggs to grateful patients and staff! Both said “If we can give poorly children a bit of joy then everybody is happy to do it. It was humbling and it’s hard to find the words to describe the visit, especially when you have children yourself”
Nottingham City Branch Secretary Gary Chambers and President Dave Green said “I think we should do things like this more often. It certainly puts everyday life in perspective, there where lots of emotions, but it was nice to see the children faces as they received Easter treats from the ‘girls’ dressed as characters featured in the classic 1865 novel Alice in Wonderland”
Regional Organiser Chris Needham who couldn’t attend due to the announced closure of Imperial Tobacco earlier in the week said “I’m proud of the Branch and what it achieves on behalf of the membership, however, it’s not often they bring joy and happiness to everybody they visit!!”
Regional Organiser Harry Harrison who has responsibility for GMB membership at the Hospitals said “it was an honour to be invited by the branch and experience first hand the work they do in the local community”
