“I thought that this was a special donation because we visited the hospital and there wasn’t any. After my sisters were told I keep giving donations to the hospital we all sit together and said we need the patients to have something even though they have pain they could watch something…I hope it is well appreciated and I will continue to do what I have to do,” Joycelyn explained.

Chief Medical Officer Dr. Michael Owen thanked Miss Fenton for the donation on behalf of the Ministry of health and the patients. “I think is extremely generous and it is something that would give a lot of lasting pleasure to people who are unwell…,” he said.
