The Barchester Bunny has been seen hopping from Hospital to Hospital this Easter carrying sack loads of Easter goodies for Children in local hospitals to make sure that everyone has a fun time this Easter.
Barchester Healthcare (London Region & Shelburne Lodge) worked closely with Tesco Stores (Brent Cross) and set about raising and donating eggs so the Barchester Bunny could hop her way into hospitals across the region with sack loads of chocolate joy.
On Tuesday (04/04/2023) the Bunny surprised Children in Wexham Park Hospital Children’s Wards with Chocolate Eggs and Cuddly toys – which bought amazing smiles to the children’s faces.
On Thursday (06/04/2023) the Bunette’s from Wilsmere Care Home (Harrow) stopped by at Jack’s Place (Northwick Park Hospital) with goodies and gifts which were warmly received.
On Good Friday the Bunny was back in action (with her trusty sidekicks from Ashford Care Centre and Wilsmere Care Home) and visited both St. Peter’s Hospital (Chertsey – Ash and Oakwood Ward) & Watford General Hospital (Starfish ward) and was able to surprise the children on the wards with gifts and chocolate – I have to be honest the Barchester Bunny had to have a ‘little’ moment after handing out the gifts and seeing the look of appreciation on the children’s faces with thanks from the parents and hospital staff. She told me in confidence that it made her feel all warm and fluffy.
Regional Director, Wayne Hughes, commented: “As a region we get great pleasure from giving back to the community and spreading love and happiness. We would not of course be able to do these events without the amazing support from Tesco Brent Cross who raised a whole car load of eggs, sweets and toys for those less fortunate this Easter. A massive thank you to Antone (Store Manager), Annie (Team Manager), Trish (Community Champion), Becky (Assistant community champion), Lizzie (Front end team support), Stein (Customer assistant) & everyone else who ensured tireless campaigning over the Tesco tannoy ensuring customers were aware of what we were doing and without this we could not be able to do what we do. Additionally a huge thank you to the Barchester Healthcare team for raising and donating eggs. It makes me incredibly proud to be working with Tesco Stores and also for having such a kind hearted team’
