A Stevenage pub landlord took time out during the busy festive season to take presents to children spending Christmas at the Lister Hospital.

Dan Richardson, of Tom Tiddler’s Tavern in Symonds Green, paid an early morning visit to Blue-Bell and Bramble Wards to leave selection boxes for the children.

Dan said: “It was a pleasure taking the selection boxes to the children’s ward.

“Christmas is about giving, I hope the kids all get well soon and enjoy the selection boxes.”
