Geoffrey the Giraffe visits Basildon Hospital bearing Christmas gifts

ALTHOUGH Geoffrey the Giraffe almost touched the ceiling in the children’s ward at Basildon Hospital, it is clearly no tall order for Toys”R”Us customers to give generously at Christmas.

The giant mascot visited the hospital to deliver gifts that have been donated by Basildon Toys”R”Us customers, who added an extra toy to their shopping trolley to give to a child in hospital over Christmas.

Elaine Lawrence, hospital play team leader, said: “We are very grateful to local people who so kindly bought an additional toy for children who are in hospital over the festive period. The children have also loved meeting Geoffrey, it has brightened their day.”
