Bowel Cancer West support Christmas Tea at Brent Ward, Derriford Hospital

BCW enjoyed a day of festive fun with patients, their loved ones and staff. The afternoon was extra special as the ward welcomed several relatives who have lost loved ones to return to the ward and speak with staff that cared for them and to remember them.

A few words from Ward Manager Heather Christie who organised the day:

“I would like to thank the children from Austin Farm Primary School, who sang carols and entertained everyone and Bowel Cancer West and Sainsbury's, who provided the children with sweets, non-alcoholic mulled wine and drinks for all those there and also contributed gifts to put in our individual patient gift bags that we are going to give to our patients on Christmas day.”

We are so thankful for the support that we get on Brent and it motivates us to keep working hard to fundraise and ensure we are providing the best possible environment for our patients.”
