Coronation Street Star Lights Up Children's Hospital
This afternoon, Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent spread a
little festive cheer when she turned on the Christmas lights at
Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, much to the delight of
patients and staff.
Charity patron, Brooke, took time out of her busy filming
schedule to visit the hospital. Along with patients, Helaina and
Becky, Brooke pressed that all important switch prompting cheers
from the staff, patients and their families who attended.
Hospital chaplain Peter Gomm presided over the ceremony and the
crowds were entertained by carol singing from the choirs.
Humphrey the bear, the RMCH charity
mascot, also joined in the fun. Sodexo kindly provided refreshments
including hot drinks and mince pies.
