Patients on the wards at North Walsham War Memorial Hospital have been given some Christmas cheer by its League of Friends.
Each of them received a gift bag brimming with 15 items from socks and stationery to toiletries and cheese biscuits – topped by a Christmas cracker.
Friends members toured the hospital on Saturday to deliver the parcels.
The presents, are one of the “extras” provided by the Friends – who rely on public donations for their funding – to improve the lives of patients and families. Staff were also given food hampers in appreciation of their work.
Chairman Keith Jarvis said: “This is one of the highlights of our year. Staff say patients are so grateful that people are thinking of them. It is so rewarding to see the patients’ smiles at a time of year that is all about caring.”
Staff sang “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” to Friends after receiving their gifts, then headed back to work on the wards.
