At the moment a few of the hospitals that we are supporting are having a higher than usual admission rate.
On Thursday we made a delivery to Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital slightly earlier than expected which caught us a little on the hop due to holidays!
However, we are not ones to be defeated and knowing how good our network of volunteers are, we knew someone would be able to make the delivery.
That someone was the lovely Carrie – whose daughter Lucy recieved a Milly Bag a few years ago, when she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Lucy was also a pupil at Milly’s School!
Thankfully today, Lucy is doing well and remains in remission.
Carrie has been a valued volunteer with Milly’s Smiles for a while now and she was more than happy to collect 20 Milly Bags and head over to Manchester.
2 lovely nurses Em and George met Carrie on her arrival. They had both cared for Lucy during her time on the ward, so it was lovely for them all to meet up again.
We continually feel grateful to everyone involved in supporting us and ensuring all new families receive a Milly Bag when they most need it.
Teamwork really does make a huge difference, we think you are all wonderful, and together we continue to make a difference every day.
