The CKDCF donated 200 chocolate selection boxes, along with £1,000-worth of equipment, to the Royal Victoria Infirmary’s Children’s Cancer Wards (4 and 14).

The CKDCF made their annual donation of 200 selection boxes, which were given to children attending the RVI children’s cancer wards’ Christmas party.  The majority of the boxes were given out to children at the party; making that day just a little bit more memorable and enjoyable. The remainder was sent back to the hospital and given to outpatients.

In addition, the CKDCF donated £1,000-worth of entertainment equipment.  The equipment, comprising of games, toys, DVDs and electronic DVD viewers, will be used by children on the ward to act as a distraction from their treatment.

Mark Andrews (CKDCF Trustee) and Carolyn Longstaff (CKDCF Supporter) handed over the donations in Newcastle – with the help of Santa, of course!  Photographs of the CKDCF’s impact at the Christmas party can be found in the gallery at the top of this article.
