Casey and his toy

Sally Kilgallon was in the outpatients department at Blackpool Victoria Hospital recently and left behind her eight-month-old son Casey’s favourite toy, called ‘Captain Kal’.

When she returned home she had a phone call from the hospital to say they had found the toy and would return it to her address.

Toy and boy were reunited thanks to the detective work of staff Amanda Nuttall and Nicola Hansford who not only found the much loved teddy but made a special journey to deliver it personally to Sally.

Nicola said: “We found the toy in the outpatients department and after a bit of detective work found out who it belonged to and wanted to make sure we got it back to its owner as soon as possible.

“As soon as we knew it was Sally we gave her a ring and I drove round to Sally’s house after work and dropped it off personally.”

Sally said: “It is a toy that has real sentimental value to the family as it was one of the first ever toys I bought for my daughter and it was passed down to Casey.

“They were so sweet and went above and beyond.”
