East-Midlands based Jelson Homes has dropped-off toys to help brighten up Christmas for poorly children who will be spending the festive period in King’s Mill Hospital.

The leading local housebuilder launched the appeal in early December, urging families across the region to support the appeal and help put smiles on the faces of the youngsters by donating new or nearly new toys and games for those between 0-16 years of age.

Items such as toy cars, action figures, dolls, books, games, rattles and building blocks, were all donated and dropped off to the children’s ward, this week, for the patients to open on Christmas Day.

Graham Jelley, sales director for Jelson Homes, said: “We would like to thank everyone who helped to make our appeal a success. As a family business we take our responsibility to local communities very seriously and we hope that this donation of toys will bring the children some Christmas cheer and help to make their day special.”
