On 23rd December 2013 children in Derbyshire Children’s Hospital went NITRO for his toy donation.  Neo arrived with 250 toys and donated them so the children in hospital, or attending appointments would be happier having such nice toys to play with.

It’s the first time the hospital have had such a donation – Nitro Neo really is one of a kind. We don’t know any six year old anywhere else that is so generous and uses their own time to make other people happyIMG_0022

Nitro Neo paid the hospital a visit with his motocross bike, some signed goodies and handed over bags and bags full of toys. After letting some of the children visiting outpatients have a sit on his bike, he chatted to them about the sport and wished them well.  Nitro Neo also visited the Sunflower Ward to play with some of the children who weren’t well enough to venture outside to have their photo taken on his bike to show family and friends.

Nitro Neo told us: “I’m a lucky boy, and I love my family very much so when my parents told me that som children might not have Christmas at home it made me sad. I wanted to know why, and I wanted to make sure they could be happy at Christmas time.

I have a lot of toys, and so does my sister, so I wanted to give a lot of them to someone else to make them happy and feel better.

I loved going to meet the children who have to stay in hospital, it was nice to spend some time with them and tell them I had brought along new toys for them to play with. I think I made them happy!”

 

Fran Watson, Senior Hospital Play Specialist from Royal Derby Hospital said: “We received a message on twitter from @Nitro_Neo asking if he could make a donation, which of course, we were more than happy to help with.

It’s always nice to know people wish to make donations, but for such a young boy to want to help of his own accord is quite unique. It certainly cheered up our patients knowing they have new toys to play with and they loved talking to Neo about his racing.

On behalf of the staff and children in the children’s hospital, thank you Neo”.

Merry Christmas everyone, love from the Babe Behind the Blog and the rest of Team Nitro! xxx

With special thanks to everyone who helped Nitro Neo spread smiles at the Children’s Hospital this year 🙂
