CREATIVE children were rewarded with Easter presents after getting to the art of the matter.
Wearside youngsters were challenged to come up with views of an accident and emergency department for a poster competition run by Wilmott Dixon, the contractor building a new casualty unit at Sunderland Royal Hospital.
Each entrant received an Easter egg, and the winners were given three seasonal hampers, presented by the firm’s Jeff French.
The contractor has also made a donation to the trust’s Macmillan Cancer Support team.
The new unit at the Royal’s Kayll Road site is due for completion next year, and trust bosses say it is set to be a key part of the region’s emergency network.
“We are very grateful to Wilmott Dixon for their generosity,” said a trust spokesman.
“This new unit will be of the best equipped in the north, and all who took part in the competition have a stake in a really exciting project.”
