Merseyside Police have delivered over 2500 Easter eggs to children at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool flanked by two Easter bunnies.
Police Constable Phil McKeown, the dedicated neighbourhood for Knotty Ash where Alder Hey is situated, helped organise the effort, which involved him and colleagues spending their day off driving around 250 miles to almost every police station in Merseyside to collect donations.
He said: "My son, Caelan, spent a year at Alder Hey when he was first born as he had a critical heart condition. The doctors saved his life and the nursing staff helped us so much that I wanted to give something back.
We pretty much lived at Ronald McDonald House during 2013 and going back with all those Easters eggs was great as I saw parents and staff we had got to know.
"The smiles on the children's faces were absolutely fantastic for me and my colleagues to see and some parents told us the sight of the Easter bunny put the first smile they'd seen on their child's face for days.
"It was a real team effort, not just from the officers who handed out the donations on the day, but also from the many police officers and support staff who donated two and half thousand eggs.
I would especially like to thank Wirral Sports and Social Club in Bromborough for their particularly large donation, and local supermarkets Tesco, Asda, Sainsburies, Co-Op and Knowsley Council for their kind donations too.
"It has been a pleasure for us to have brought a little bit of cheer to some kids and their parents during what I know myself is a very difficult time."
