Saleem’s Desserts kind donation of Christmas gifts for children

The Saleem’s owners donated over £1000+ worth of gifts to the Paediatrics team for children in hospital over Christmas.

Local business, Saleem’s Desserts located in Leam Lane, Gateshead, wanted to support the local children of Gateshead who unfortunately needed to attend hospital over the festive period. 

The Saleem’s Owners purchased and donated over £1000+ worth of gifts to our Paediatrics Team at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital who were able to hand these out to so many poorly children who attended hospital over Christmas.  

Clare Drummond, Charitable Funds Manager expressed her sincere thanks on behalf of QE Charitable Funds and the Paediatrics Teams for this extremely generous donation and added, “It is very difficult for children attending our hospital at any time of year but at Christmas when they should be at home with their families, it is sad however, these amazing gifts really did help put a smile on so many children’s faces at Christmas all thanks to the Saleem’s Team, thank you.”
