In lieu of sending out Christmas cards to customers and suppliers this Christmas, VIP made a donation to the local children’s charity Dreamdrops.
Dreamdrops fundraises for Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust’s Holly Ward and Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) at Hinchingbrooke Hospital as well as supporting the Trust’s community children’s services in and around the Huntingdon area. The money that Dreamdrops raise goes towards the things that the NHS simply cannot afford, but would love to have.
VIP is committed to supporting and developing the local community and Dreamdrops is a local charity that makes a real difference to children’s lives at a time when they need it most.
One of Dreamdrops current fundraising efforts is for specialist toys and equipment for the Autism Corner that they are developing in the Children’s Outpatients Department at Hinchingbrooke Hospital and the money donated will go towards this.
Dreamdrops Chairman, Anne-Marie Hamilton said “The Play Leaders will be thrilled to be able to provide some more for items for the Autism Corner, with VIP’s donation. I know that having a quiet area where they can feel safe, and enjoy toys that are specifically designed for them, will make a huge difference to these children when they have to come to Outpatients.”
