Jim-Jams appeal has got legs

Pyjamas have been arriving thick and fast for the annual Jim-Jams for Jamie appeal.

Jamie Inglis, from Kelfield, passed away in January 2013. He spent December 2012 in intensive care, and his family say the memories of the kindness and generosity of people at that time will stay with them forever. For the last seven years his family have been making sure children in hospital over Christmas are extra snuggly. And last year was the family’s biggest campaign to date. Jim-Jams for Jamie collects pyjamas for boys and girls aged 0 to 17, which are delivered to the children’s wards at York Hospital, Leeds General Infirmary, Sheffield Hospital and Hull Royal Infirmary.

Once again, the Selby Times is a local drop-off point for the appeal. You can post your donations or drop them off at our offices at 11 The Crescent, Selby, on Mondays and Tuesdays 9am-4pm and Thursdays and Fridays 9am-1pm. Pyjamas can be wrapped or unwrapped, but please ensure they are new and that an age label is attached to make sure they go to the correct age. The last day for donations is Wednesday, November 17. For more information about Jim Jams for Jamie, search Keep Jamie Smiling on Facebook.
