The children’s ward at Burnley General Hospital were ready for action after receiving a Playstation and a selection of games from Nelson Market Traders.

The Market Traders Support Group appealed to shoppers at Nelson Market and asked them to donate any unwanted toys.

And the group sent their representative Samantha Worswick to BGH with a generously donated PlayStation for the children on the ward.

Samantha said: “We always like to make collections and do something for the local area.

“We’ve recently been collecting unwanted toys for the Burnley, Colne and Nelson areas.

“With it being around Christmas time, our visitors are even more generous than normal and when the PlayStation was donated we thought the best use for it would be the children at the hospital.”

The children’s Ward at BGH makes sure that all its young patients are happy and entertained by supplying toys for all ages.

Sister Beverly Martin from Ward 27 said: “We’re grateful to Samantha and everybody from Nelson Market for donating the PlayStation to the ward.

“It’s always exciting to receive a donation and this one is really special as the children love to play on the console.”
