Staff at the Big Blue House Day Nursery in Stamford Bridge decided to make donations to York Hospital's Lots of Cots Appeal instead of sending each other Christmas cards. They have raised £50 towards the Appeal.
The York Teaching Hospital Charity has launched the Appeal to raise £13,550 for 10 new cots for York Hospitals Labour Ward.
Vikkie Richardson, Manager of The Big Blue House Day Nursery said "We decided in December, instead of sending Christmas cards, we would all donate some money towards a childrens charity. One member of the team saw the Lots of Cots appeal in the local paper and suggested it as the charity. We all thought this would be an excellent choice of charity as we have four pregnant members of staff who will be going to York Hospital, and nearly all our children who attend the nursery were born at York Hospital."
Liz Barron, Sister of the Postnatal ward at York Hospital said, "I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at the Big Blue House Day Nursery for their generosity and support. Every penny donated to the Appeal really makes a difference to ensuring we can place the cots as quickly as possible."
