Fenland children brought ‘festive cheer’ to hospital patients and staff after delivering their 250 hand-made Christmas cards.
Pupils from The Windmill Primary Federation made the cards for staff and patients at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital after an idea from their teacher.
Six youngsters visited the Norfolk hospital on Thursday, December 13, to hand deliver the cards to patients on Windsor Ward.
The federation is made up of children from Tilney St Lawrence, Terrington St John, West Walton and Walpole Highway.
Jiby Cherian is a charge nurse at the hospital. She has thanked the children for “brightening the morning for both patients and staff”.
