A generous donation from Virgin Media Business has helped bring a smile to young people in local hospitals this Easter time.

Patients of The Blossom Children and Young People’s Centre at Craigavon Area Hospital and The Daisy Children and Young People’s Unit in Daisy Hill Hospital have had their Easter period sweetened with the presentation of Easter eggs.

Over one hundred Easter eggs brought a smile to the faces of children when Southern Trust IT Staff Gerry Mallon, Andrew McCreary and Virgin Media Business representatives John Gray and Trevor McKee made the ‘egg-stra’ special delivery.

Sister Lyndsey Hughes said: “We were delighted to see how the gifts cheered up the children and would like to thank Virgin Media Business for their very generous and thoughtful donation.”
