Drake Circus collecting donations for Derriford Hospital charity

The Derriford Hospital Children's Happy Hospital Fund, which is a local charity providing support to hospitalized children and their families, has been selected by Drake Circus as its Christmas charity.

The Children's Happy Hospital Fund charity at Derriford Hospital makes use of the donations to purchase devices such as DVDs, and iPads for distracting children during medical procedures; as well as sensory equipment required for special needs patients. In addition, it also buys art-and craft-related material for creating different decorations and presents.

Furthermore, the charity also spends the donation amount for buying Christmas gifts for hospitalized children who miss out of the Christmas festivities. For the Woodcock and Wildgoose wards of Derriford Hospital, the charity money is also spent on entertainment activities which span for one week prior to Christmas.

With Drake Circus having chosen the Children's Happy Hospital Fund as its Christmas charity, the key focus of donations will be the Children's Happy Hospital Fund Giving Tree, which will be placed on the ground floor of the shopping centre. The Giving Tree will remain placed in Drake Circus till Christmas Eve.

People desirous of making donations to the Children's Happy Hospital Fund can either log on to www. justgiving. com/DrakeCircusGivingTree website, or can make their donations in person at the Drake Circus Management Suite on the Food Court Level.
