Tesco staff donate toys and games

Tesco staff donate toys and games to Southampton Hospital Charity….all delivered in a handmade sleigh!

Each Christmas, Tesco supports Southampton Hospital Charity and the children’s wards.

Staff at local Tesco stores including the nursling distribution and depot centre have all kindly purchased and donated a gift for the Children at Southampton Hospital Charity. These presents will then be given to those Children who find themselves in hospital throughout the Christmas period.

All the gifts have been delivered to the hospital in a handmade wooden sleigh accompanied by reindeer and penguins. Staff from the maintenance team handmade the sleigh and each year they create new additions to the sleigh display.
 
The Sleigh sits in the staff canteen at the Nursling Distribution centre from November – December for staff to make donations of gifts to.
 
Fiona Delement, Play Specialist, says: “It is never fun to be in hospital, especially at this time of the year, so this donation to Southampton Hospital Charity will make the world of difference to the children on our wards."
 
"We are really grateful to the staff at Tesco for their generosity in donating these gifts to our patients. We must also say a huge thank you to those in the distribution centre who have built the sleigh in which to carry the presents- definitely puts a smile on the faces of the children”.
