On Friday 11th January, the Joel & Son Fabrics team paid a very special visit to the wonderful St George's Children's Hospital, in South London, to hand deliver bags and bags (and bags) of gifts for the brave children in their care.
So many of our lovely customers sent in brand new toys over the holiday period, for us to pass on, and clicked on to the hospital's fundraising link to donate to the charity. The awesome Ed Sheeran also sent in a big box of merchandise! Thank you Ed! It was a joy for us to see the children's faces light up as they spotted their treasure haul - games, action figures, dolls, craft sets and remote controlled gadgets, to name just a few!
These spirited children endure so much, and often have siblings who are also forced to spend endless days, weeks and months in the facility alongside them. A mountain of exciting new toys and gifts, to be distributed amongst them over the coming months, was definitely a welcome surprise for the children, their families and the fantastic team who work for the charity.
Here is a picture of our E-Commerce director, Coby, with some of the children undergoing treatment, and the staff, during our visit. Thank you for having us, St George's!
