Goody parcels are being delivered to staff at North Walsham War Memorial Hospital to give the hard-working team a boost during the coronavirus pandemic.

They are being supplied by the hospital’s Friends support group, which routinely channels public cash donations into buying extras to benefit patients, visitors and staff.
