Community Comes Together to Support Children’s Ward at Royal Bolton Hospital
Jenna Atkinson, a resident of Lostock, has organized a festive event to raise funds for a new television and gaming cart for the children’s ward at Royal Bolton Hospital. The event, called “A Night of Christmas Shopping, live music and a fashion show,” will take place on November 9 at the McGinlay’s Suite at Toughsheet Community Stadium.
Hosted by BBC Radio 1 DJ Vicky Hawkesworth, the event will feature a fashion show by Liberty Bluff and the Dress Club. Local stalls will also be available for Christmas shopping, and live music will be performed by Harriet Thornton.
Jenna Atkinson was inspired to organize the event after learning that the children’s ward at Royal Bolton Hospital only has one TV and gaming cart to share among all the children. She aims to raise enough funds to purchase an additional cart, as each one costs more than £2,000. By hosting this event, Jenna hopes to make a difference for the children’s ward and support the amazing charity, Our Bolton NHS.
Tickets for the event are priced at £20 and include a Carrs Pastie supper. However, ticket sales will close on Monday, October 30, so interested individuals are encouraged to purchase tickets promptly.
This event not only provides an opportunity for the community to come together and kick off the festive season but also highlights the importance of supporting local healthcare facilities and charities. The Royal Bolton Hospital’s children’s ward plays a vital role in providing care for young patients, and the addition of a new television and gaming cart will greatly enhance their experience during their stay.
By raising funds for this cause, Jenna Atkinson and the attendees of the event are showing their commitment to the well-being of the community and the environment. Their support for Our Bolton NHS Charity demonstrates the positive impact that individuals can have when they come together for a common cause.
Overall, “A Night of Christmas Shopping, live music and a fashion show” is not only an enjoyable event but also a meaningful way to make a difference in the lives of children at Royal Bolton Hospital. It serves as a reminder that small actions can have a big impact, and that by working together, we can create positive change in our community.
