The JMMB Group team members brought Christmas cheer to the children and staff at the paediatric ward at the Spanish Town Hospital over the weekend (December 22), as part of the company’s annual ‘Share the Love’ initiative.’

On the occasion, the scores of children on the paediatric ward received gifts from the JMMB team and were treated to time of carolling, games and storytelling with Caribbean author and storyteller, Amina Blackwood-Meeks.

 “We were excited to share with the children at the Spanish Town Hospital, on this occasion, having recognized the needs of the children who may feel distressed about being hospitalized, especially at this time of the year,” she said.

“Christmas is typically a time for children to enjoy with their families and so we wanted to ensure that even as these children may spend the time in the hospital, they feel fully engulfed in love and good cheer. As a company, we are also intentional about spreading joy and love with others and this treat provided another occasion for us to do so.”

Members of the Spanish Town Hospital team welcomed the initiative by the JMMB team to share with the children in this way, and also joined in the activities during the treat.
