Children’s delight at Easter eggs donation to hospital

Children at North Tyneside General Hospital were given an early Easter treat today – a donation of around 170 Easter eggs.

Staff at Kier North Tyneside donated the eggs which were collected at the main depot in Killingworth and sites across the borough and, along with their mascot Kieran, brought them along to the hospital.

Carole Clayton, ward manager on the Children’s Ward, said: “The children were over joyed by the number of Easter eggs donated by staff at Kier North Tyneside and we would like to thank them very much for their kind gesture. 

“Being in hospital at this time of the year is difficult for youngsters and this certainly brought a smile to their faces and will bring delight to many over Easter.”

Mike Furze, Kier regional director, said: “Kier North Tyneside employees have done exceptionally well donating this many Easter eggs. Collection points were set up at the main depot and many of our sites across the borough.

“We have been operating in North Tyneside for over five years so supporting the local community is something we all feel very passionate about. 

“I hope that our donation of Easter eggs makes the children’s stay in hospital a little brighter.”
