GENEROUS students donated more than 100 Easter eggs to patients at Heartlands Hospital.

Amraj Kaur, Martina Burton, Amy Hanaphy and Tia Brown from Solihull College and University Centre collected Easter eggs and raised over £60 in donations for those on the children’s and Dementia wards.

Amraj said: “It felt rewarding to be able to brighten someone else’s day and provide company for people.

“Everyone was extremely pleased and impressed that we had taken the time out to put a smile on the patient’s faces.

“We had gotten into a conversation about disadvantaged citizens and suggested that it would be a good idea if we could organise something for Easter.

“It was then that I decided to contact Heartlands Hospital and see if they would allow us to deliver Eggs for the children at the Hospital.”

The students contacted the hospital to see how they could put their plans into action and after speaking with the Hospital’s Charity Officer, Samantha Howell, they decided that they would call on the help of staff and students at the College.

The student enrichment team assisted the students in designing posters which they then distributed around the College campus encouraging everyone to either donate an Easter egg or to make a cash donation.
