Chocolate for children

No child wants to spend Christmas Day in hospital, but those being treated on the Piam Brown ward at Southampton General will receive a sweet surprise thanks to a selection box collection organised by Student Committee member Darcy Allen.

WEB-DSC01914Our Library team know a chocolaty good cause when they see one and helped Darcy by collecting more than 100 goodies donated by staff and students –  including ‘handed back’ prizes for success in the Library’s seasonal quiz.

“I’m genuinely amazed at the generosity of students,” said Darcy, who delivered the boxes to specialist paediatric cancer care ward in the last week of term.  “Piam Brown ward is the Student Committee’s chosen charity for the year and this is a great boost to our ongoing efforts.”
