CHILDREN who had to stay in Worthing Hospital over the holidays were able to enjoy a game of pool, thanks to a donation.

Staff on Beach Ward – a ward for young adults – asked the hospital charity Love your Hospital for help after the old pool table collapsed and had to be thrown away.

Within a couple of days after launching an appeal for help, the charity was contacted by AMC Leisure and South East Leisure who offered to donate a pool table, along with new balls and cues, and also the choice of colour of the felt.

Community and events fund-raiser, Tina Ellis, said: “Children of all ages will get many hours of pleasure from this wonderful gift.

“The Love your Hospital charity would like to say a very big thank-you to John O’Connor of AMC Leisure and Andrew O’Connor or South East Leisure for their kindness and support.”
