“It’s always hard for children in hospital but it’s especially difficult on special occasions like Easter.

Anything we can do, even simple things like sharing Easter eggs, helps lift the children and gives them something new to focus on.

– Libby Nolan, fundraising manager at The Children’s Foundation
