A kind-hearted couple have donated their wedding cakes to NHS staff.

Pabs Uddin and Kayleigh Norman were due to get married in April 2021, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions the couple cancelled their big day.

They found themselves unable to get a refund on the money they had put down for a range of flavoured cupcakes so instead decided to deliver the treats to staff at South Bristol Community Hospital (SBCH).

Pabs said: “Unfortunately our wedding needed to be cancelled due to the pandemic.

“We couldn’t get a refund from the baker so instead we thought why not give as many cakes as we could to our local hospital.

Words cannot describe how grateful we are to all the staff in the hospital and also how brave the patients have been whilst they are trying to recover during these challenging times. This is our small way of hopefully putting a smile on a few faces.”

Pabs and Kayleigh made the cupcake delivery on Sunday 27 November.

Jana McClelland, manager at SBCH, said: “Patients and staff were absolutely delighted with an incredibly kind donation of cupcakes by the lovely Pabs and Kaleigh. They were even thoughtful enough to provide alternative options for patients with additional dietary requirements.

“The cupcakes went down an absolute treat. Most of our patients spend a significant amount of time in hospital and with the current climate, many of them have not seen their families in a long time.

“Staff and patients alike had a lovely morale boost. It was such a thoughtful and kind donation.”
