Christmas gifts sent to Cameroon

More than 500 shoeboxes of Christmas presents were sent to a village in Cameroon thanks to kind-hearted staff at the QEII and Lister hospitals.

Staff from women’s services, children’s services and the renal department at the East and North Herts Hospitals NHS Trust sent the presents to children in the village of Ntumbaw to make sure they had a happy Christmas.

The boxes were filled with pens, books, toys, toothbrushes and sweets and were taken to Cameroon by the New Jerusalem Foundation, of which renal dialysis unit sister Mandy Northover is secretary.
