Delivering Christmas cheer to children at Bradford Royal Infirmary

Sarah Royal, from Idle in Bradford, has donated over a thousand selection boxes to children in hospitals at Christmas over the past four years.

In the first year Bradford Royal Infirmary (BRI) benefitted from the appeal. In years two and three both BRI and Airedale General Hospital received festive deliveries.

For the past two years Sarah, who manages Yorkshire Water’s social media channels from its’ Bradford HQ, asked for help from her friends at the company so a third hospital, Calderdale Royal, was included.

Yorkshire Water’s Christmas appeal supports food banks and homeless charities in the Yorkshire and Humber region again this year. Donations of basic food supplies and Christmas goodies, including selection boxes, have poured in from kind-hearted employees.

Caring Sarah set herself a target of 355 boxes this year which has been smashed by donations of boxes and cash from her friends and family and Yorkshire Water colleagues.

Sarah said; “It must be awful to be a kid in hospital at Christmas so it’s nice to see them smile when we drop by to say Merry Christmas with our chocolate treats. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and I’m hoping my appeal will grow again next year.”

Calderdale Royal and Airedale Hospital children’s wards also received a delivery from Sarah the very same day.
