WYTHENSHAWE firefighters will be delivering presents to the
Children's Ward of Wythenshawe Hospital on Christmas Day.
Firefighters from Green Watch have teamed up with local company
Easi-Drive to raise cash for the much needed gifts.
Watch Manager Pete Tomlinson, said: "Every year is different -
sometimes there are twelve children there, some years there are
"What doesn't change though is how happy they are to see us and
how grateful they are for the gifts they receive.
"There are always left over presents for those who come back to
the ward later on in the day or on Boxing Day, nobody gets left
"Being in hospital over Christmas must be tough for anyone, but
especially for a child.
"We're really grateful to Easi-Drive for helping us collect so
many gifts and for the extra money. We're going to use it to buy
baby-grows for those born over the festive period, and any money
that is remaining will go directly to the children's ward."
