A while ago now we had to track down a lego-man that a little boy had lost whilst he was on the ward. His parents had taken him on a special holiday to Legoland and he’d chosen this man but then he lost it whilst he was here. We had a phone call to say perhaps it had gone down the laundry shoot but it didn’t appear. We phoned the factory in Leicester but they didn’t find it either. Then 3 weeks later, I was about to throw the paper with the phone number away when we got a phone call from the factory to say they’d found it. The little figure had gone all the way there and they sent it back for us. That was a very happy moment.
