A Stevenage gym helped put smiles of the faces of children at the Bluebell ward at Lister Hospital over the Easter weekend.

For the second consecutive year, David Lloyd has collected chocolate eggs for unwell children at the Stevenage hospital, with staff and members contributing to the cause.

Lian McTigue, family activity co-ordinator at the gym, said: “Last year the sports manager Cameron Bridger and the DL Kids Crew decided to donate some eggs for the children at Lister Hospital, which was a huge success for such a great cause.

“This year I decided to repeat what we did last year by donating a couple of eggs and left them at our reception desk and it created a bit of a buzz around the club.

“Due to the kindness of our lovely members and staff that grew to a huge amount.

“The staff said they have on average 100 children per day and between David Lloyd, Tesco, Waitrose and Asda we managed to deliver around 150-200.”
