Children’s Day Joy At Paediatric Ward
23 October 2015
Penang, 23 October 2015 – Patients at the Penang Hospital’s paediatric ward were all cheers when a team of staff from Eastern & Oriental Hotel paid them a surprise visit.
The ward atmosphere was enlivened by the gleeful laughter of the children as they were entertained by the antics of a clown and magician brought along by the team.
The clown was seen deftly creating and distributing balloon sculptures for the little ones, putting a smile on their faces while the magician captivated his audience with deft magic tricks and kept them asking for more.
During the visit, the staff also spent quality time with the children as Eastern & Oriental (E&O) Berhad group hospitality and lifestyle director Michael Saxon led the team to present goodie bags filled with toys and stationery items for the children.
Saxon said it was heart-warming to see the joy in the children’s faces during their visit in conjunction with World Children’s Day.
“We are lucky to be given the opportunity by Penang Hospital to celebrate with the children particularly this year as we celebrate the 130th anniversary of our hotel.
“We wish them a speedy recovery, and for their parents and them to stay positive always,” he said.
Joining Saxon were E&O Berhad group strategy and communications (Penang) senior manager Ann Tan, E&O Hotel communications and public relations manager Eileen Chong and communications and public relations executive (Social Media) JJ Tan Choon Theng.
