A local high school has kindly donated over 25 Easter Eggs to Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust’s Rainbow Ward.

The year eight class from St Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic High School, Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan, donated an Easter egg or £1 to Rainbow Ward.

Michael Taylor, 27, a PE teacher at the school, and the form tutor for his class 8W who donated the eggs, said; “I’m really proud that my pupils have given back to their local hospital, it is really thoughtful of them.”

The idea came about when a former colleague of Michael’s said that she was donating Easter eggs to another hospital.

Michael wanted to donate to the school’s local hospital and contacted Rainbow Ward who were more than happy to except the generous offer.

Catherine Scott, Play Support Worker on Rainbow Ward said; “We haven’t had any donations yet, so this was a lovely surprise. The eggs are definitely going to make our patients happy and it is such a nice gesture from the school.”

The Easter eggs that have been donated will be used as part of an Easter egg hunt taking place for Rainbow Ward patients later this month.
