Children in the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Yorkhill will be having great fun following the donation of DVD’s, game consoles and software games by The Colours of Islam.
The Colours of Islam, founded by Refana Saleem, provided the opportunity for members of the Muslim community to donate toys during the time Eid and these gifts have been given to the children in the hospital.
Refana explained: “The time of Eid is an important day in the Muslin calendar and one way of celebrating is through acts of generosity and kindness.
“I wanted to mark the day by helping the children in the hospital have fun and gain the confidence needed to help them through their stay in hospital.
“Members of the community have given generously and enabled us to give some happiness to children who are sick and being cared for in hospital.”
The Play Service Department at the hospital accepted the gifts along with one little girl/boy who was well enough to meet Refana and see the enormous delivery of toys.
Marjorie Gillies, Senior Nurse added: “We would like to thank everyone who gave so generously. We are always grateful for donations to the hospital - all the patients will really enjoy their new toys or games!“
