LIFE got a little bit sweeter for the little ones at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow today – thanks to the big-hearted staff at Pacific Building.
They knew eggs-actly how to show their generous and caring qualities when it came to doing something charitable at Easter.
The workers organised an office collection, asking colleagues to donate either cash or chocolate eggs – and ended up amassing a hugely impressive 100 eggs.
Then it was off by car with a boot-load of goodies to the RHC on the south side of the city to make a special delivery for the children.
Lead Administrator Lauren Schoolar and Quantity Surveyor Martyn Duffy handed over the sweet treats to paediatric nurse Louise McCormick at the children’s Accident and Emergency Department.
She was delighted to receive the eggs on behalf of the many children she helps care for and said: “The kindness shown by the guys at Pacific is fantastic. We can’t thank you all enough.”
Lauren added: “It’s always nice to be kind and to show your caring side, especially when children are involved. I’m proud of everyone on the Pacific team who made a donation.”
And Martyn said: “We were only too happy to do something for the kiddies. It’s actually incredible how easy it is to make such a big difference to someone else’s life – through something as simple as a staff whip-round.”
