Older patients who will be spending Christmas in The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn have a present to open thanks to the generosity of Balfour Beatty staff.
Two crates of presents were delivered for patients on Oxborough Ward by staff from the firm.
Staff were inspired to support older patients after delivering Easter Eggs earlier this year.
Community Liaison Officer Nicky Paine and colleague John Voaden, who also volunteers at the Hospital, presented the presents to ward manager Michelle Lawrence.
Nicky said: “We wanted to make sure that older patients were not forgotten during the festive season and had a Christmas present to open.”

They said they are looking forward to continuing to support the QEH next year.
