What people are saying...

After our donation box was stolen... don’t let one poor act dampen your spirits ladies, you all do a great job and genuinely make the patients, visitors and the staff have a much better day. Nothing but love.

It makes a difference to the patients and their families, some of who spend weeks, sometimes months with us on the wards. Well done ladies and keep up the good work, always a pleasure to see your smiling faces on J88.

Long may you continue helping our patients and relatives, you all do a brilliant job. I love it when we get new patients and we tell them they get free TV and goodie bags!

In February 2022 the BBC Leeds & West Yorkshire regional news did a feature on 'Hug on a Tray'.

We are so grateful for the added publicity this gave us and the video article really helps to communicate our cause and what it means to patients.

The article can be found on the BBC news website at 'Hug on a Tray: The Leeds charity supporting blood cancer patients'
