Student Nurses from Bangor are going the extra mile for patients who will be in hospital this Christmas.

Nobody likes being in hospital, especially at Christmas, so the student nurses have been busy donating and wrapping gifts to give to patients on Christmas morning to cheer them up.

The students have been donating the presents for patients from any of their own extra or unwanted gifts, and they have even been buying extra items in their weekly shop, to try and make someone’s Christmas morning in hospital a little happier.

Hundreds of shoe boxes have been prepared to give to patients, containing things like diaries, fluffy socks, playing cards, soap, shower gel, adult colouring books, reading books, puzzle books, nail varnish, pens, pencils and wash bags.

All gifts donated will be given to elderly patients who are in hospital over the Christmas period in Ysbyty Gwynedd and Ysbyty Glan Clwyd.
