The Royal Hospital for Sick Children (RHSC) at Yorkhill is having a musical Christmas this year. Volunteers, hospital staff, local school children - and of course our young patients - have all taken starring roles in a new Christmas carol DVD.

The DVD is being played on screens throughout the hospital and features special renditions of Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, Jingle Bells and Frosty the Snowman.

Volunteers from Morgan Stanley and Delottile, Yorkhill Children’s Charity, Play Services staff and young people from Ayr Academy all gave up their time to come along to the hospital and take part in the festive carol singing for the celebration DVD.

Each year the RHSC at Yorkhill receives tremendous support from charities, local people, businesses, schools and other public sector organisations.

This year in addition to the hundreds of presents donated to the hospital, Fire Scotland came along to help assemble to the large Christmas tree outside the hospital. Patients and their families were also treated to special performances from the Song and Dance Factory, boy band Rewind and Talia Storm.

Kevin Hill, Director of Woman and Children’s services, said: “We are continually amazed at the generosity and kindness of everyone involved in donating their time and gifts to our young patients. I would like to pass on our thanks to everyone involved in making the festive period that bit merrier for our patients.

 “This DVD sums up the spirit in the hospital at this time of year. Although it’s never pleasant being in hospital everyone goes the extra mile to try and make it as festive and fun as possible.”
