TOYS, books and clothes to fit premature babies were given to Bristol Children’s Hospital by a Yate father and daughter after they saw a wish list for young patients.

 TOYS, books and clothes to fit premature babies were given to Bristol Children’s Hospital by a Yate father and daughter after they saw a wish list for young patients.

The hospital, with the Grand Appeal that supports it, drew up the list to make life brighter for children in its care and their families.

Sarah Hitchings, who has raised money for the appeal for nearly seven years, spoke to her dad, Jerry Milner, and he set the ball rolling with a £300 donation.

Sarah said: “I then asked my family and friends to donate new items.”

Tesco in Yate also contributed by giving discounts and vouchers on items bought for the children.

Once everything had been bought, Sarah and her dad, who runs CAMB Machine Knives in Yate, went to the hospital to hand over the gifts.
