PC Pugh said: “This has been another challenging year and I wanted to do something nice for a worthy cause.

“The generosity from our officers and staff was outstanding and it will mean so many children will have a Christmas they can enjoy and remember.

“I have no doubt that these donations will put a smile on the face of so many children and we hope to continue with this support in coming years.”

Sister Sarah Jenkins, of ward 25 at King’s Mill, said: “We recognise it’s been a tough year for our youngest inpatients, so spreading some festive cheer and being able to hand out your donations is gratefully received.

"I’m sure our colleagues working Christmas Day on the children’s ward will also enjoy giving out presents too.

“We can’t wait to see their faces Christmas morning when they find out Santa Claus has visited them in hospital.”
