A family brought festive cheer to hospital patients on Christmas Day.

Ian and Aimee McDonald, of McDonald’s Painting and Decorating, and their children Amelia and Alfie visited Ward 4 at West Cumberland Hospital with gifts for all 30 patients to receive on Christmas Day.

Lesley Thompson, who works on the ward, thanked the family for their generosity, and said the patients were "absolutely delighted" to receive the gifts.
