Young patients spending the Easter period in hospital got a special treat thanks to a generous donation from Quotient Clinical employees in Nottingham and Edinburgh.
In the weeks before Easter, Quotient staff had kindly been donating chocolate eggs and Easter-related gifts, and on Tuesday 22nd March a small group of lucky employees had the delight of visiting the Teenage Cancer Trust unit and children’s wards at Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham.
“It was one of the most heart-breaking and heart-warming days I’ve ever had in my life” commented Ellen Sissins, Organisational Development Co-ordinator at Quotient Clinical. “We met some unbelievable people. From baby to toddler to teenager, each had a smile on their face all because of an Easter egg. It’s a small difference but a smile can be very special.”
Over 250 Easter eggs, bunnies and activity packs were donated to the children in Nottingham, while the Easter eggs donated from the Edinburgh office were delivered to the children’s wards at the Royal Hospital for Sick Kids in Edinburgh by the Sick Kids Friends Foundation.
Teenage Cancer Trust is Quotient Clinical’s charity of the year and staff have been working hard to support the charity through a number of fundraising activities designed not only to raise money, but also to promote awareness of the valuable work it carries out.
