Valentine's Day Treats - Thank you Amy!

Amy Farrington, a healthcare assistant on Okeover ward, St Oswald’s Hospital, created these special treat bags for her ward colleagues to mark Valentine’s Day. Amy, who has worked on the ward for five years, included a heart keyring, heart chocolates and love-heart sweets in each treat bag for everyone on duty over the weekend.

Amy said: “I enjoy doing crafty things. I did something similar at Christmas with an advent calendar and used to organise all the raffles and fayres on the ward. I made enough bags for the staff that were on for the weekend and I also made some homemade heart chocolates.  I just think especially at the moment things are tough and I like to try and bring a little joy to people in difficult times.” Thank you Amy for your thoughtfulness and kindness.
