There was an unexpected bonus for the young patients in Derby Infirmary when a team from the city’s fast-growing customer experience company Webhelp UK turned up to give out some Easter Eggs to youngsters unfortunately spending their Easter in hospital.
The company who now employ over 1200 staff in their Pride Park operation are determined to make a positive impact in the Derby area and have elected a team of Engagement Ambassadors to forge positive links within the community.
The hospital visit was a perfect opportunity to reach out, although the team caused a bit of disruption in the Puffin Ward when their arrival, laden down with Easter eggs, coincided with lunch being served.
Next stop with the children’s A and E where, thankfully, there were not too many youngsters waiting for treatment – but enough to appreciate the gesture.
“I’m really glad we managed to do this over Easter,” said Abigail Matemazano, who headed up the team. “The eggs seemed to be very well received and we are looking forward to having more interaction with the Derby community.”
Kerry Brady, Events and Community Fundraiser at the infirmary was full of praise for the gesture.
“I’d like to thank the Webhelp UK team for their visit and the Easter egg donation. It was nice of them to think of others at this time of the year. ”
