Just received this email from mark Curtis re our Xmas collection

Hi Mark hope you are getting better and back in the driving as to speak.

Had a nice card today fro the hospital thanking us for the dvd players i took down,i was able to purchase 6 of them with a film to go with each which i took down on Xmas day.

The monies you sent me over after that i have put to one side i was hoping to go down early this year with some more dvd players if that is okay with you guys.

The children are moving into a brand new ward this year that has 40 beds as oppose to the 23 beds at the present time and my aim this year is to provide every bed with its own portable dvd player,the players are rechargeable and all the beds have electrical sockets by them so every time a new child comes into the ward as soon as they get in bed their are our dvds.

The sister has said that the dvds are a great idea as it occupies the children for a couple of hours at a time allowing the staff to attend to other cases and also a brief break for the parents.

Would you thank all the guys for their kind donations which i have made clear to the staff of as i am only the messenger,was wondering if we can do some sort of card from the guys that i can take down next time as i would like them to feel that their kindness is appreciated if thats a good idea.speak to you soon mark.

Thanks for doing the leg work Mark, feeling warm in the heart already just thinking of the kids occupied by our DVDs on a hosp bed! :lol:

Thanks again Mark for organising all that and for the feedback...

That's made my day... We spend our working lives working our butts off for people who are mostly ungrateful and complain, and you wonder if it's all worth it...

Then we are able to spare a bit and make a small donation to people who really appreciate it and get some direct feedback like that and it all seems worthwhile...

Can we have a 'warm glow' emoticon please...

BTW, how much extra would we need to top up the fund to get all the DVDs?

Thanks, its a nice feeling to know it was appreciated, and if it helps the staff too, double whammy.

Mark,

I pledged £25.00 but as I don't have paypal / timing I never paid up. I have my cheque book at the ready and want to pay what I promised. Are you doing further collections or is there a name and address for a fund that I can contribute to regards this hospital?

Thanks for the update Mark, and for the effort you put in on this.

So hows the ticker? On the speedy road to recovery I hope.
