Lakeside Donates Gifts for a Good Cause

4 minute read

Activity Coordinator, Ash and Domestic Assistant Amanda rallied together to raise donations for Wigan hospital and Nature Trial Nursery Euxton.

After putting an appeal to the staff at Lakeside for donations, the first stop for Ash and Amanda was Wigan hospital, donating 56 selection boxes and plush toys to the Rainbow Ward and children’s A&E for all the kids.

“They were very appreciative when we showed up, and I think the kids will really love their donations.

“It made us feel so good being able to put a smile on peoples’ faces this Christmas.”

Ash Jennings, Activity Coordinator

The hospital plans to send thank you cards after receiving the donations from Lakeside as a token of appreciation.

The team then visited Nature Trial Nursery in Euxton to donate a generous amount of children’s story books and toys which were donated by Joan Booth’s family, a resident at Lakeside Care Home.

“It went well, they looked thrilled to accept our donations and we were very pleased with the response from the hospital and nursery.

“It felt amazing to do a good thing like this for our community, it’s so important to show people that we can come together as a community just because we care; I think that’s important.”

Amanda Carruthers, Domestic Assistant
