Idris Elba and Stormzy dressed up as Santa Claus to surprise patients at two children’s hospital in East London.
For the patients at hospitals across Newham in East London, Christmas came early yesterday as Idris Elba and Stormzy paid a visit to the children on the ward whilst also handing out presents to each of them.
Idris who is from Newham, said he “wanted to give back” continuing to say “With a 15-year-old daughter and three-year-old son myself, I can only imagine the anguish and maybe even fear these children and their parents are experiencing.”
The pair spent a fair amount of time at the hospitals with the hope to spread some Christmas cheer and bring some joy to the patients and their families lives over the festive period. They posed for pictures with both the hospital workers and patients.
