The success of Milly’s Secret Santa for BCH

17th January 2018

On Thursday 21 December 2017, Emma and a band of Magic of Milly helpers delivered over 350 gifts to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for distribution to the children, siblings and parents of families in the hospital over Christmas.

A fun, emotional and truly exceptional day started with the logistics of fitting all the presents into three estate cars – we had slightly underestimated how much room we’d need!

Packed up and ready to go, we then encountered the difficulty of getting them out of the cars in the street and in to the actual hospital. Luckily, the kind team at the local Waitrose lent us some cages and we managed to get them all onto the ward in 6 trips!

The presents safe inside, Emma and the team visited the PICU and Complex Care wards with gifts to some of the patients. The remaining 300 or so gifts were then organised into age ranges to ensure that the staff on Christmas Eve could ensure each family got the right selection of presents on Christmas Day.

  

It is only with the overwhelming generosity of Milly’s friends and family that this Secret Santa was such a success, and as a result, Milly even got her own BCH star on the wall (she’s now got three!) to celebrate her Christmas giving.
