Posh stars deliver Easter Eggs to Amazon Children’s Ward.Peterborough United’s Michael Smith, Jack Baldwin, Tom Nichols and Gwion Edwards, along with our very own Easter bunny Peter Burrow, were on hand to deliver Easter Eggs to children on the Amazon Children’s Ward at the Peterborough City Hospital on Tuesday (11th April) afternoon.
The Easter Eggs were funded by Steve Coulson and the team at Serpentine Green Shopping Centre, based in Hampton, and they also provided some big boxes of chocolates for the staff on the ward in appreciation of the work they do.
The four players, along with the ever-popular Peter Burrow were taken around the ward, meeting kids and parents before handing out the eggs, posing for pictures and giving away signed match programmes.
A club spokesperson said; “We have built up a fantastic relationship with staff at the Amazon Children’s Ward over the years, so it was brilliant to be able to visit and deliver Easter Eggs to the children on the ward in time for Easter. The Easter Eggs were very kindly funded by Steve Coulson and the team at Serpentine Green Shopping Centre and we thank them for their continued support.”
Posh striker Tom Nichols added; “It is always an honour to be able to visit the Amazon Children’s Ward and help spread a little bit of joy during, what is a difficult time for the kids and parents, who are in hospital. Credit to the staff here on the ward, they do an amazing job.”
