Staff at the Stevenage-based Institution of Engineering and Technology have donated Christmas gifts to hospital patients for the third successive year.

Four sacks of goodies were handed out to patients on the Mulberry Bush children’s unit who face spending the festive season in hospital.

Rebecca Gillick and Emma Taplin from the IET communications team handed over the haul and Rebecca said: “We wanted to do something to help young people who were spending Christmas in hospital.

“It was so lovely dropping the presents off – the ward was really appreciative.”
