Trinity supporting Children’s Ward at Pinderfields & Wakefield Street Kitchen!

Wakefield Trinity are supporting the Children’s Ward at Pinderfields Hospital and Wakefield Street Kitchen by delivering Easter Eggs over the Easter period!

On Monday 15th April, we will be delivering the Easter Eggs to the Children’s Ward at Pinderfields along with doing a “Public vs Player” event in the main area from 2pm.

All Easter Eggs will be collected in the Club Shop in the Ridings Centre until Saturday 13th April. Please feel free to donate as many as you like!

Kirsty Jowett from The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust said:

“ We feel incredibly lucky to have support from Wakefield Trinity team at our Easter event this year, for not only raising the profile of our Charity but additionally continuing their incredibly kind gestures supporting our young patients on the wards by way of donating Easter presents directly to them. We are overwhelmed by the generosity continuously shown by the Club. On behalf our Staff, Patients, Families and Carers thank you for being part of our story to take our services at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust to World Class standards.  ”

Emma Smith from Wakefield Street Kitchen said:

Wakefield Street Kitchen is about all about working in and with the community. We do a weekly kitchen every Wednesday outside the Wakefield Cathedral which feeds anyone who’s in need of hot meal not just the homeless. We also provide free toiletries and clothing but most of all a group of volunteers who are more than happy to have a friendly conversation with everyone.

We provide seasonal cheer to people in the community last Christmas, we handed out chocolate selection boxes and small gifts to both our patrons/ Pinderfields hospital children’s ward and 2 old age homes .
This Easter we plan to visit the old age homes again with a mascot of a giant Easter bunny and let the elderly know they are not forgotten and hopefully bring a child-like smile to their faces. We are collecting chocolate Easter eggs to hand out so any donations would be appreciated… Every little helps

Adam Sweeney, Marketing Manager at Wakefield Trinity added:

We’re always looking to get involved in the community so it’s great for us to be able to support two great causes in Pinderfields Hospital and Wakefield Street Kitchen and bring a little bit of joy to the young and the elderly over Easter.”
