A baby who visited Royal Preston Hospital reunited with a lost cuddly rabbit thanks to a Twitter appeal.


Oliver Weyer attended ward eight at the hospital, but unbeknownst to his dad, Benjamin Weyer, little Oliver had thrown his bunny out of his car seat while they travelled back to the car park.

In the voices of the lost bunny and Little Miss Giggles, Chorley and Royal Preston Hospitals tweeted: “Hello. Whilst we enjoy volunteering at enquires at RPH, we would prefer to go home to our loved ones.


We were both dropped today in the front car park of the Preston hospital. Please help us be reunited with our young owners. Can you RT and get us home? Now, do you need a free map?”

Benjamin soon replied and was able to successfully reunite baby and bunny this week.
