Patients young and old at UHNM have an Easter Egg in time for the Bank Holiday Weekend thanks to the kind efforts of one young man!
Nine-year-old Seth Leigh from Clayton donated dozens of Easter eggs at Royal Stoke earlier this week so patients in our Older Adults Wards and Staffordshire Children’s Hospital at Royal Stoke can a tasty treat during their stay with us.
Seth spent his spare time approaching local supermarkets for donations.
