The Christmas trees, which are 22ft and 18ft in height, were delivered to Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust over the weekend to be displayed at Arrowe Park and Clatterbridge hospital main entrances for the duration of the Christmas period.
The tree lights were officially switched on by hospital nursing staff, Kate Rigby sales consultant and Colin Miller site manager at Stewart Milne Homes. David Allison, Chief Executive of Wirral University Teaching Hospital, said: “Patient care is always our priority and for those who are in hospital over Christmas we try to make their experience as easy as possible. We hope these trees will help bring some festive cheer to patients, their families and our staff who will be working hard in providing the best care possible over this busy period for us. Many tens of thousands of people will pass through Arrowe Park and Clatterbridge hospitals during the next few weeks, in which our dedicated hospital staff will continue caring for patients this festive season as they do throughout the year. This kind donation from Stewart Milne Homes will certainly help us launch our festive season at both Arrowe Park and Clatterbridge hospitals.”
Lynne Vogel, sales manager at Stewart Milne Homes, said: “We want to support local organisations wherever we can and we know Arrowe Park hospital well as it is just a stone’s throw away from our homes at Upton Pines. We hope that these Christmas trees help to bring a little bit of festive magic to those who have to spend the holidays in hospital, rather than at home with their loved ones.”
