KIND-HEARTED hospital supporters have brought a dose of Christmas cheer to hospital wards.

The League of Friends of Whipps Cross Hospital gathered a haul of 160 parcels to brighten up Christmas Eve for elderly patients.

Volunteers from the fundraising group, which has been running for nearly 60 years, used a trolley to deliver the gifts to patients in the elderly care wards this morning.

If you are interested in becoming a member and would like to volunteer or make a donation, please contact the League of Friends via the hospital on 020 8539 5522.
