A Blyth youngster is aiming to bring festive cheer to children who will be spending Christmas in hospital.
Cory Davison is hoping people and businesses will once again support him in handing out presents to children at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary on Christmas Day.
The ten-year-old, who has battled to overcome an aggressive tumour and is now in full remission, has handed out presents at the hospital before and is keen to repeat the gesture this festive season.
Steven, who will dress up as Santa Claus for the day while Cory and his twin brother Cain will be elves, said: “We will be at the RVI at 8am on Christmas Day so Cory can deliver the presents.
“Our plea is to ask local businesses and residents to donate gifts and toys that they are able to give, for the children.
“We’re really thankful for the gifts the last time we did this, and due to that success we decided to do it again.”
Presents will initially be handed out to children on the cancer ward, with any left going to youngsters on the children’s ward.
Steven added: “The more toys the merrier.”
Anyone can drop-off presents, which must be new due to health and hygiene reasons, and unwrapped, for children aged two to 16, at the Isabella Pub in Blyth, on evenings and weekends until Tuesday, December 23.
Gift vouchers can also be donated which can be used to buy further presents.
