Toys delivered to Amazon Children’s Ward thanks to partnership between Posh and Smyths Toys.
Peterborough United Football Club and Smyths Toys in Boongate have joined forces to deliver Christmas presents to youngsters spending the festive period at Peterborough City Hospital.
Due to ongoing coronavirus restrictions, once again, we had to adapt with the toys dropped off outside of the hospital ahead of three days of quarantine before they can be distributed on the ward by the hard-working nurses.
Press Officer Phil Adlam explained: “Firstly, I want to thank Storm Woodley and everyone at Smyths Toys for their generosity once again. They have been superb throughout the year. In normal circumstances, we would personally deliver the presents with the players and management team on the ward, but unfortunately like last year, that is not the case. The club, the Foundation and Smyths Toys have joined forces though to make sure the Children’s Ward do not miss out.
“We have been visiting the ward for many years now and it is always nice to see the impact that we make as a football club at this time and we hope and pray that next Christmas, we will be able to spend time on the ward with the players.”
Storm Woodley, store manager at Smyths Toys said: “We’re proud to be working with Posh to bring toys to children and young people spending time in hospital at Christmas. We really appreciate the incredible work of all the staff at Peterborough City Hospital, and would like to thank them for making this possible, even in difficult times.”
