For many, a Christmas tree is a magical family tradition that brings joy to people’s lives over the festive period.
This year, Grand Central has teamed up with Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity to add a touch of Christmas magic by donating their very own Christmas tree, complete with the festive works, for the children, their families and the hard working staff at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, to enjoy.
Jonathan Cheetham, General Manager for Grand Central said:
We’re so pleased to be able to donate Grand Central’s Christmas tree to Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity. Christmas is such a wonderful time of year, bringing so much happiness and joy to children and is especially important to the brave young patients and their families at the hospital.
There are many children who are too poorly to spend Christmas Day at home, so we’re pleased that we’re able to help spread some joy across the wards at the hospital during this festive season.
Birmingham Children’s Hospital is one the UK’s leading specialist paediatric centres, offering expert care to over 90,000 children and young people from across the country each year. The team at the hospital works hard to provide the highest quality of treatment to patients, who require their services, and to share and spread new knowledge and practice.
Kirsty White, Corporate Partnerships Officer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, said,
We are always overwhelmed by the generosity of others surrounding Christmas time.
Christmas is such a precious time for the children, and we like to do as much as we can to help our patients have an unforgettable Christmas. The Christmas tree donated by Grand Central is sitting in our hospital conservatory, and it looks beautiful.
The Christmas tree will sit inside Birmingham Children’s Hospital’s conservatory from 14th December – 5th January 2017.
