Sharon Edwards from the Leeds Teaching Hospitals says: “We cannot thank NBT and Accenture enough for giving some of our younger patients the opportunity to go along and see a performance of A Christmas Carol. What a magical experience it was, especially as they got to meet some of the cast, their little faces were such a picture! The patients who came along all have long-term illnesses and conditions and are regularly receive treatment here. On behalf of all the children and their families, a very big thank you.”
