Thanks to the Bay Entertainers and all the people who went to see their Christmas pantomime, children being cared for in Son Dureta hospital were able to enjoy some extra festive cheer themselves. On Friday evening, the Three Kings made their own visit to the hospital in the form of the bay Entertainers led by Valerie Hughes. Hughes explained yesterday that while money raised from the ticket sales of the pantomime will go to charity, three large boxes were placed by the entrance to the Auditorium, into which the audience were asked to deposit any unwanted toys and games. Hughes said that all three of the boxes of wrapped presents were full to over flowing by the end of the pantomime's run and on Friday, Hughes, laden down with presents, made sure that the children at Son Dureta did not miss out on the Three Kings. Hughes said that there is one “very brave” patient who was allowed to choose two presents. Nine-year-old Silvia Gonzalez had asked the Three Kings for an ice cream making machine. Because of her condition, all she can eat is ice cream - but Hughes said despite her medical condition “she was so cheerful and always laughing” and the presents brought an even bigger smile to her face.
