Princess delights young patients at Basildon hospital

YOUNGcourt patients at Basildon Hospital enjoyed a surprise visit from a local charity pageant princess during the half-term holidays.

Purfleet’s Courtney-Lee Collins, who is known locally for her charity fundraising efforts, came to the hospital to meet with patients on the children’s ward and to present a cheque for £100.

Chantal Taylor, Play Lead Specialist said: “We are really grateful that Courtney-Lee has taken the time to come to the hospital to meet with our young patients. They were excited to meet her and to try on her crown.

“The money she has kindly raised for the Trust’s Polly Parrot Appeal will enable us to buy vibrating pillows which are a great comfort to our patients with sight difficulties, and can be a distraction during treatment.”
