After a stay in the children’s unit, nine-year-old Isaac Grover he knew exactly what the ward needed to keep the children occupied whilst they were in hospital.
He stood up in his school assembly to tell his school friends his idea and asked them to support him in raising enough money to buy an Xbox 360 for the children who are on the ward for long periods of time.
Isaac set to work baking cakes with his brother Louis and sister Isabelle to raise £312.40.
When staff at Argos in Sealand Road heard what Isaac was aiming to do, they offered him a 10% discount and employee Kim Burns bought an extra two year warrantee insurance for the Xbox out of her own pocket.
Isaac and his family then presented the Xbox 360 plus Minecraft, Fifa 15 and Terraria games, to staff at the hospital.
The remaining £103.71 of his fundraising was donated to fund new games when they were needed.
Isacc was delighted to meet up with his favourite nurse Becky Hayward who said she remembered him well because of his love of cheese sandwiches and his vast monkey collection.
Community and events fundraiser Angie Lopez said: “ The Xbox will be very popular on the ward and on behalf of the fundraising team and staff and patients on the children’s ward I would like to say a huge thank you to Isaac for all his efforts. “This was such a lovely idea”.
