Friday night as you will have seen through social media (Friday Night Selfies!), is when we hand out the gift bags to Northampton General Hospital.
Friday is the end of the working week, which people are looking forward to. A chance to get away from work and wind down before you are back at work on Monday. Yet, if you are in the hospital then the days roll in to one and Friday no longer has that same feeling. This is why we chose Friday night, so that patients had something to look forward to when we come into hospital with our gift bags. Now we have patients say they have been looking forward to us coming, which is what we always wanted to achieve.
Gift Bag Hand Out.
We start at 6.30pm on a Friday evening and it takes as long as it takes. If someone wants to spend a bit of time talking we will do that, to us it is not a problem. There is no rush.
