Xbox gift delight for ward kids [Evening Times (Glasgow, Scotland)]

(Evening Times (Glasgow, Scotland) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) A LANARKSHIRE Women's multi-faith group has donated an Xbox to the children's ward at Wishaw General Hospital.

The Xbox was funded by Humjolie's multi-faith festive celebration, which saw women come together for the sixth annual event to celebrate the Muslim festival of Eid, the Hindu festival of Diwali and Christmas.

The event, which raised pound(s)353, saw women from different backgrounds and religious beliefs socialise, learn about other faiths and enjoy the celebrations.

Anila Ansari, health improvement practitioner for NHS Lanarkshire, said: "The children were delighted and it will be fun for them to use while they are in hospital." Felix Mullholland, chairman of Motherwell Community Forum, said: "Together with Bellshill and Wishaw Community Forum and NHS Lanarkshire, we were delighted to support Humjolie's annual event again."
