Members of staff at Clifton Hospital collected groceries for homeless youngsters and held a special Harvest Festival service for patients.
The event for patients, carers and families was held at the hospital near Lytham on Tuesday, September 27.
Tins and packets of food brought in by staff will be donated to the charity Streetlife which supports homeless people under the age of 25 in Blackpool.
Jenny Nicholas, a healthcare assistant on Ward 1, has links with the charity and will hand over the food to Streetlife.
Clive Lord, a Chaplain for Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, conducted the well-attended service on Ward 1 of the hospital.
Val Gulwell, a sister on Ward 1 who has worked for the Trust since 1988, said: “Jenny suggested giving the food hampers to to Streetlife.
“We feel we are giving something back to the community. They help us with fundraising so we want to give something back.
“The service was very well attended. Clive blessed the food and led the hymns. We hope to put on more events like this.
“The patients really enjoyed themselves. I love working with my elderly patients.
“It’s a really nice place to work. The staff are passionate about the care of the elderly, otherwise they would not get so involved in fundraising.”
