A CUMBRIAN 'miracle' boy has donned his elf suit and delivered a whole host of festive goodies to young patents and hospital staff.

Six-year-old Noah Wall, who is paralysed from the chest down, was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus at the RVI Hopsital in Newcastle in 2012.

The kind-hearted youngster, who lives with his family near Wigton, spread some Christmas cheer around the hospital wards last December, and went one better this year.

As reported by the News & Star last month, Noah and his mum Shelly, teamed up with Nigel Richardson from Secret Hamper to deliver 70 hampers, each of which were sponsored by an individual, business or group, as a thank you to everyone who had helped him during his early years.

And last week, Noah, Shelly and Nigel visited the hospital to deliver the festive fun, and all were overwhelmed by the reaction to the gifts.

Nigel Richardson from Secret Hamper said: "It was a humbling and emotional day.

"The day before setting off for RVI, I spent the day packing the hampers, there were best part of 4,000 products in the boxes.

"Imagine if just each staff member took just one item that would be a huge amount of people touched by the business sectors show of appreciation.

"Unbeknown to me, the RVI and group of hospitals has some 15,000 staff so we may be back for a second or maybe third visit at some stage.

"It was quite emotional meeting Noah for the first time and I was taken back at how cute he was and so funny.

"The atrium of the hospital was packed with hundreds of staff that were able to pop down for a few minutes whilst we presented the hampers.

"From there it was followed by an interview at the ITV studios in Gateshead, then straight from there to the BBC studios in Newcastle.

"I'd just like to thank all the businesses that have shown their support."

Shelly Wall, Noah's mum, said the day of the delivery was unbelievable and quite emotional.

She told the News & Star: "We met hundreds of staff and the contents of the hampers will reach thousands.

"We may even have to go back in 2019 for round two as the hospital is so big!

"This has an impact on many levels - from bringing people and businesses together at a time when the country is quite divided and uncertain about its future, with one common goal - to show our appreciation to the staff that work tirelessly and selflessly caring for others, regardless of background, for our loved ones, often without any recognition.

"A lesson can be learned here all on its own, then there’s the message that Noah can send out to other children that may not have had the best start out in life, that miracles can happen and anything is possible.

"Noah had such a wonderful time at the RVI hospital meeting everyone, having selfies and hugs, so many shook his hand and thanked him."

As a New Year's Resolution, Noah hopes to top his own act of kindness and make deliveries to other children's hospitals around the country, including Birmingham Children's Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, and Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for businesses and individuals to sponsor a hamper.
