WORKERS at Sheffield’s Children’s Hospital used the power of pink to mark an international day celebrating the hard work and dedication of nurses.

The nurses were treated to gifts donated by Mecca Bingo, all wrapped up in pretty pink packaging. The goodies, which included tea, coffee, chocolate and biscuits, were sent by the company as a thank you gesture for the invaluable service they provide caring for poorly youngsters from across the region.

Julie Austin, a specialist nurse in infection prevention and control, said the gifts went down well with staff.

She added: “I never walk through the hospital without feeling proud of the high standard of care and thought that is given by nurses on a daily basis. Excellent care is provided not only to our patients but to their families.It is so good to hear the laughter and witness the relationship which is shared by so many nurses and families.”

International Nurses Day is held every year in May to mark the birthday of Florence Nightingale.
