Corrie stars visit patients at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital

Jennie McAlpine (Fiz Stape), Antony Cotton (Sean Tully) and Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster) were among soap visiting Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital this week.  The soap stars were there to hand out presents to some of the hospital’s poorliest patients and to sprinkle a bit of festive cheer.
Jennie, Antony and Brooke spent time on Ward 84, the children’s cancer ward at the hospital, which looks after young patients with the condition from across the whole of the North West, before saying hello to patients on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit.

The hospital’s young patients and their families were delighted to meet their favourite soapstars, who handed out presents and chatted to the young children.

Long-term patron Antony commented: “Visiting the Children’s Hospital at Christmas time is always one of my favourite times of the year. Meeting the patients and their families is always humbling, heart-warming and a huge privilege and is something I cherish as a patron of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity.”

The support of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity means that the hospital can provide additional resources that make life easier for patients and their families who use the hospital.

Perhaps Mr. Nelson should have had the courtesy to contact you directly in regards to his pictures. It's funny how he can take such heartwarming pics and then leave should a cold heartless comment on the blog. How the Grinch stole Christmas comes to mind.
