Why not pick up a burger and donate a toy for a child in hospital?
A collection of toys, games and books is underway at Westwood Cross McDonald’s
Several of the staff at the restaurant in Margate Road, Broadstairs, have had their own children cared for at QEQM’s special care baby unit.
Their appreciation for baby and children’s care at the hospital has prompted them to run a toy collection.
They are looking for good quality used or new toys for the unit and QEQM’s Rainbow Ward for children, and hope their customers will help.
Musical and sensory toys, rattles and soft books are wanted for babies. For older children, they are gathering DVDs (of U, PG or 12 rating only), arts and crafts sets, board games, jigsaws and plastic toys.
For teenagers, the team are collecting art and craft materials, books and comics, MP3 players, games consoles and games.
Manager Sam Maxfield said: “We are asking customers to see if they have items their own children may have grown out of that could help make another child’s stay in hospital a little easier.”
