A Chorley construction firm has donated £1,500 to the Lancashire Teaching Hospital Charity’s £1 million Children’s Appeal.Advertisement
The contribution, made by D and G Builders, follows a £902 donation raised by the company, its suppliers and clients, to purchase gifts and play items from the charity’s Amazon wish list.
The Children’s Appeal aims to make the children’s wards, outpatients and other paediatric treatment areas at Royal Preston Hospital less intimidating for the 10,000 babies and young people, aged from one day to 19 years, who attend for check-ups and treatment annually.

It will also fund a parent break-out zone, including a fully kitted kitchen and dining area.
