A Basildon-based courier company has delivered some very special parcels recently – to the children’s ward at Basildon Hospital.
Managing Director at Abby Couriers, Mr Mark Giles, said: "Spending time in hospital is never a nice experience and that is particularly true at Christmas time when you’re a child which is why Abby Couriers decided to take part in a national initiative to deliver some parcels of Christmas cheer to Basildon Hospital’s children’s ward.
"The idea came from the National Courier Association and is one we are pleased to support by working in partnership with our local hospital.
"We were pleased to deliver more than 30 parcels containing Christmas goodies to the hospital on Christmas Eve and hope that it helps brighten Christmas for some of the children who have to stay in hospital this year."
