Queen's Hospital, Romford
A man, who wasn’t enthusiastic about Christmas said feeling “rewarded” when he donated presents to poorly children in an emergency department.
Matt Curnock, 32, a doctor at Queen’s Hopsital, Rom Valley Way, Romford, decided to challenge his brother Daniels’ “scrooge-like attitude” during the festive season by getting him to hand out presents to children in hospital.
For the second year, Daniel in a full elf outfit visited Queen’s Paediatrics A&E department with lots of gifts to the delight of the young patients.
The toys were bought by the brothers and Daniel, a lawyer, also received donations from some of his clients.
He said: “I wasn’t that into Christmas but when it comes to kids lying there not feeling well it’s different.
“It’s really rewarding and is something I can do to make the festive season that bit better for them and their parents, especially when they might be in hospital at Christmas.”
