Kids get a kick out of England win this October with the help of Winkworth Battersea

We received the biggest smiles in the whole tournament.

England may have left the race to become Rugby World Cup champions once again, but for all avid Rugby fans, the rest of the tournament so far has provided plenty of on-the-edge-of-our-seat moments and smiles aplenty. As huge rugby fans ourselves, the Winkworth Battersea office wanted to get in on the action in a special way this year.

We pulled our resources to gather four tickets to the England vs. Uruguay game on October 10 and sent them straight to the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital for two children and two parents. We were thrilled to see that the children had received their tickets in time for the game and even more thrilled that they were able to enjoy the England squad playing at their best, with an expected but sensational win of 60 to 3.

The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital is one of the largest and busiest trusts in the country, with an average of 220,000 patients a year. With 371 beds, treating patients who require a specialist team and services, Royal Manchester is the largest single-site children’s hospital in the whole of the UK. Since the birth of the NHS in 1948, Booth Hall, the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital in Pendlebury and St. Mary’s in Manchester, which would all later relocate to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital in 2009, thrived to become integral services in the north of England.

The hospital is recognised as a centre of excellence and research and training is a vital part of day-to-day work. Winkworth’s Battersea office were excited to play our part to help make a day for two children special and were overwhelmed to receive the biggest smiles in the whole tournament.
