Generous Jay

A local boy has generously donated £160 of toys and games so that other children can still have fun while being treated in hospital.

Eleven year old Jay Young has been treated on various occasions in our Children’s Ward at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, and decided there weren’t enough games or toys for older children like him.

He decided to raffle his own Steiff Teddy Bear and raised £160, which he spent on a Nintendo DS, computer games and board games for the ward.

Play Specialist Seonad Hopkins was delighted to receive the donation. She explained: “The staff in the department would like to thank Jay for his generous donation of toys. Raffling his own toy to raise money for others was such a selfless thing to do and we are very grateful – I’m sure lots of kids will benefit from the console and games he bought for us.”
