HIT-Mattel present drop and Pingu at hospitals
Spread a Smile were delighted to partner with HIT, a subsidiary of Mattel Inc, on 10th and 11th December on a present drop at University College Hospital and The Royal London Hospital.
A team of colleagues from HIT brought bundles of toys including board games, DVDs, books, cars and trains onto the wards, into play areas and to the rooms of those too unwell to leave their beds.
HIT also surprised children at The Royal London Hospital with a visit from popular children’s character Pingu.
Vanessa Crocker, co-Founder of Spread a Smile said, ’Thank you to the HIT-Mattel team. It was wonderful to see the reaction of the children to the wonderful presents from Mattel. They were thrilled to meet Pingu. We so enjoyed working with HIT’s team who were amazing with the patients and their families.’
