The Grand Pier’s Grinch Brings Festive Cheer to Bristol Royal Hospital for Children

On the 20th of December, The Grand Pier team brought the magic of Christmas to young patients at Bristol Children’s Hospital. The mischievous Mr. Grinch left the Pier’s Grotto to pay a special visit to multiple wards, spreading joy and laughter to children spending the festive season in the hospital.

Accompanied by representatives from The Grand Pier, the Grinch spent quality time with each and every child, creating memorable moments that will surely be cherished by both the young patients and their families. 

To amplify their visit, The Grand Pier donated an impressive 170 gifts to Bristol Children’s Hospital, symbolising the 170 hospital beds within the building. The gifts, ranging from monster trucks and cuddly toys to engaging board games and action figures, were carefully selected to bring joy and entertainment to children of all ages.

This gift-giving initiative was made possible through the generous funding and support of the Axentis Michael Charity Trust, an organisation committed to making a positive impact in the local community. The trust’s donation aimed to elevate the festive experience for young patients at Bristol Children’s Hospital.

The visit from the Grinch and the generous gift donation not only brightened the day for the children at Bristol Children’s Hospital but also highlighted The Grand Pier’s dedication to making positive memories for families. 

The Grinch has now returned to the Grotto at The Grand Pier to complete the Grinch Grotto Takeover, which takes place on the 16th, 17th, 21st, and 22nd of December 2023. If you haven’t booked a visit to see the Grinch this year, don’t worry— he’ll be back next year!
