A group of fundraisers have been banned from donating cakes to hospital patients for the first time in over 20 years - for health and safety reasons.By the hospital, right..?
But this year the Friends of Royston Hospital refused to accept the five trays of cakes because of health and safety concerns about how they might have been prepared.Not the hospital at all. In fact, the matron showed a goodly amount of backbone in stating:
Royston hospital matron Anne Richmond said the fundraisers should contact the hospital about future donations.Good for her...
She said: 'Somebody came up with national ruling stating food could not be accepted but we have not really enforced it.
'We can't stop people bringing in cakes or sharing them, and I will happily take the cakes in future.'
