Local woman launches Christmas appeal to give chocolates to children at Bradford Royal Infirmary

Sarah RoyalSarah Royal from Idle, Bradford, has launched an unusual Christmas appeal – she aims to collect 150 chocolate selection boxes and give them to the children’s wards at Bradford Royal Infirmary to cheer them up this Christmas.

Sarah, 25, who works as a website administrator at JCT600 in Apperley Bridge, was helped by her colleagues, family and friends last year when she exceeded her targets and collected 130 selection boxes for the hospital, enough to cover the three children’s wards at BRI as well as the children’s accident and emergency department and the day care clinics.

Sarah commented: “It struck me last year how miserable it must be for children spending the festive season in hospital and I thought that giving boxes of chocolate bars to the three children’s wards would be a good way of spreading some Christmas cheer.

“I’d really like to thank everyone who generously donated Christmas chocolates last year, it would be fantastic if you could support me again and help me to beat my target of giving children at the hospital almost 1,000 chocolate bars!”

Anyone wishing to support Sarah’s appeal can drop off their chocolate selection boxes at JCT600, Tordoff House in Apperley Bridge.
