Last week, I photographed singer/songwriter Jamelia as she made a special trip to Birmingham Children’s Hospital to switch on the Christmas Tree lights.
Marking the start of the hospital’s annual ‘Light Up a Child’s Life’ fundraising campaign, Jamelia, Macey Littleton (a patient) and Jamelia’s daughters, Teja and Tiani switched on the lights, to the delight of the hundred staff, patients and family members who braved the cold conditions to meet her.
After spending time signing autographs and chatting to patients and their families, Jamelia, Teja and Tiani headed inside to a ward where they delivered several early Christmas presents to patients.
Louise McCathie, Head of Fundraising at Birmingham Children's Hospital, commented:
"We were delighted to welcome Jamelia, Teja and Tiani to the hospital to launch our Christmas festivities and we’d like to thank them for their support. There is still time for our supporters to buy a light and support Birmingham Children's Hospital and our patients at Christmas time. Please visit www.bch.org.uk for more details."
