Young patients at Bristol's Children's Hospital are in for a Christmas to remember thanks to one regional housebuilder.

Yate-based Persimmon Homes Severn Valley handed over a sack full of presents to staff at the hospital's play centre to keep patients entertained over the festive break.

Helen Haskell, corporate and events fundraiser for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal; the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity said: "Thanks to Persimmon for this very kind gesture, it will certainly make a big difference to all of the children who will be spending Christmas in hospital."

Nicola Reed, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes Severn Valley, said: "Most of us take Christmas for granted, waking up in our own home and opening presents around the Christmas tree.  However, not everyone is this lucky.

"We want to ensure that the children waking up in Bristol's Children's Hospital are able to enjoy a bit of normality and we hope that this donation brings some festive cheer at this time of year."

Bristol Children's Hospital is one of the UK's leading children's hospitals and treats young patients from across the South West, South Wales and beyond with life-threatening illnesses and serves as the paediatric intensive care centre for the whole South West region. The hospital is the region's specialist centre for a range of services including cardiac and renal treatment, complex surgeries and bone marrow transplants, treating over 100,000 patients every year.
