Eggsciting time on ward

PATIENTS on the children’s ward at Basildon Hospital had an Eggstra special start to the Easter holidays this week when Tesco, Pitsea, arrived with Easter Eggs for the wards.

Kerry Mileham, Community Champion for Tesco said: “Being in hospital in no fun at any time of the year. We wanted to bring smiles to the faces of as many children as possible, so we brought lots of chocolate eggs to give to the young patients who need to stay in hospital over the holiday period.”

Clair Grayston, fundraising officer at Basildon Hospital said: “The team at Tesco brightened up the children’s day and we want to say a huge thank-you.”
