Space Station hatches Easter treat for children in hospital

Space Station Self Storage staff hatched a plan to cheer up children spending the holidays in hospital by taking them several crates packed with Easter Eggs. The eggs went to children who have to stay on the wards at Wexham Park Hospital, Slough, because they are too sick to go home over the holiday period and to other children around the area who are visited at home by medical staff.


Space Station managers Jonathan Slade and Sue Cole dropped the eggs at the hospital.

"We wanted to do something to help the community and thought cheering up some children who can't go home to be with their family and friends was a good idea," said Mr Slade.

“Our staff all come from the area and have family and friends in Slough, so Space station likes to think we are part of the family and like to give something back every now and then.”

The eggs were collected at Slough Space Station, in St Paul's Avenue, Slough, by staff and packed in to several massive crates.

They were handed over to staff on the children’s ward that were delighted to accept the gift for the children, saying it would "make their day".
