A YOUNG pupil has shown his support for his local hospital by raising funds for The Princess Alexandra Hospital Charity.
Kyle, aged six, from Harlow (pictured right), created rainbow themed key rings made from modelling clay as part of his homework and sold them at his primary school, raising £30 for the hospital maternity department.
Gary Taylor, head of charity at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) said: “A huge thank you to Kyle for taking the time to create the fantastic keyrings and raise funds for our maternity department.
“Kyle is a kind-hearted young person who wanted to give back to our amazing NHS workers after their hard work and dedication to support the local community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are so grateful for every donation that we receive, no matter how big or small. If you have any ideas on how you would like to raise funds for our charity, please get in touch by emailing [email protected]”
Giuseppe Labriola, director of midwifery and gynaecology at PAHT (pictured right) said: “A huge thank you and well done to Kyle for raising the funds for our department. This is a very kind gesture and will be greatly appreciated by each and every one of our hard working team.
“We are always so pleased to welcome back women, birthing people and their families, who we have supported to bring their bundle of joy into the world.
“It was a pleasure to meet Kyle and see his mum again, who we supported throughout her labour as she gave birth to a baby boy last September. Thank you again.”
