Pub managers in Plymouth made the day of some poorly children by bringing them every gift they had asked for on a wish list.

The team from Craft Union Pub Company came up with the idea at a monthly meeting and delivered items such as PlayStation control pads, early learning musical instruments and a cot mobile to the children's ward at Derriford Hospital.

Sean Clarke, the Craft Union Pub Company's area manager for Plymouth, said: "Giving something back to the local community is something all of the managers at Craft Union are passionate about, so it was absolutely fantastic to see the faces of the staff when we delivered the surprise gifts.

"Pubs are much more than just a place people go to eat and drink, they're the beating heart and social hub for communities and we're determined to do our bit and seek out those who need help most in the community and give something back."

Pubs in Plymouth also sponsor the local disabled children's football team after overhearing one of the players father's talking about their struggle for funding in The Cherry Tree.
