For her November project Hannah is collecting advent calendars and Christmas sweets and chocolate for two very special places at local Newcastle-upon-Tyne hospitals – Crawford House at the RVI and Scott House at the Freeman.
These houses are run by the charity The Sick Children’s Trust, providing clean, comfortable accommodation for families of children in hospital, close to their loved one’s bedside. The charity also offers practical and emotional support to families of seriously ill children. Hannah’s Auntie and Uncle used Crawford House in 2015 when her cousin Edward was very poorly.
Being in hospital is difficult at any time, but at Christmas it can be extra tough. Hannah wants to help the families who will be staying over the festive period by providing advent calendars and sweet treats for December. Hannah needs at least 40 advent calendars to cover all the rooms at the two houses, plus lots of sweets too!
Both houses have wish lists if things people might like to donate too:

Hannah will be collecting until November 26th, when she will be taking her collection to the two houses and having a little look around too! If ou would like to help Hannah, let is know!
