The annual act of generosity is part of Hasbro’s Global Day of Joy, an initiative that allows staff to act locally and bring joy to the community.
On Thursday 15th December, 25 staff from Hasbro’s office in Stockley Park arrived in a classic red double-decker Happy Bus, joined by Optimus Prime, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and Santa.
The team toured the wards, personally presenting the children with their gifts. Young patients who were able to venture outside also enjoyed a tour of the Optimus Prime monster truck. The vehicle, modelled on one of the popular Transformers characters, was laid on by Hasbro, which had organised a massive donation of presents to children being treated on the Peter Pan, Wendy and Tinkerbell wards at the Hospital in Pield Heath Road, Hillingdon.
Play Specialist at Hillingdon Hospital, Pat McGee, commented: “Once again Hasbro has come up trumps with some wonderful gifts to make Christmas brighter for the children staying with us on the wards. All the staff would like to say a big thank you for their generosity.”
