The Children’s Ward at Doncaster Royal Infirmary received a monster truck delivery of goodies donated from the proceeds of this year’s Doncaster Road Runner Show.


The giant ultra-yellow ‘Rumble Bee’ made an extra special appearance as it buzzed onto the hospital site packed full of toys, games and teddies for the children, including £900 worth of Argos vouchers for the ward. Auto-enthusiasts, Ritchie McGibbon, Michelle Lovell and Nobby Elliot presented their gifts to Children’s Ward staff and patient Connor Halliwell on 15 August 2016.

The Children’s Ward cares for the Trust’s younger patients who need hospital care. The ward will use the vouchers to buy Tippy cups for babies and toddlers and items to improve the facilities for parents who wish to stay with their child overnight.

The Road Runner Show is an annual event which takes place in Doncaster. The show features a number of custom and classic cars, monster trucks and motorcycles. To find out more head to
