X FACTOR singer Hannah Barrett and stars of the Fairfield Halls panto Peter Pan brought some festive cheer to kids at Croydon University Hospital this lunchtime. The stars handed over toys donated to the Advertier's annual festive Toys for Joy appeal. We received a huge number of donations this year, with special thanks also going to Ikea, Mothercare, and new Purley Way store Kiddicare, who donated sacks full of toys for children on the Rupert Bear and Peanut wards. And a special mention too for the 500 girls from the Croydon Netball League, who made a huge contribution to the appeal. South Norwood's Hannah, 17, said: "It feels good to come to the hospital, and say hi to everyone and give out presents. "People need to realise that not many of these kids get a chance to even watch TV because they are ill; they can't go to concerts and things like that. For us to go out of way, including the panto stars, to say hi to them is nice."For more photos and further details on Toys for Joy and the celebrity visit, read Friday's Advertiser.
