Ariana Grande is spreading Christmas cheer to the people of Manchester, England.
The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity thanked the 29-year-old ‘Side to Side’ singer on Monday for donating Christmas gifts to patients at several local hospitals.
“Thank you Ariana! » they or they tweeted. “We were thrilled to receive Christmas gifts for the young patients at our Ariana Grande hospitals.”
The charity added that the gifts were distributed to babies, children and teenagers at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Wythenshawe Hospital, North Manchester General Hospital and Trafford General Hospital.
“It’s so wonderful that Ariana has once again been so caring and has made this special donation to our family of hospitals,” Manchester Foundation Trust Charity Acting Director Tanya Hamid wrote on Instagram.
“We know that Manchester, and in particular the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, holds a special place in Ariana’s heart,” she added.
Grande’s generous donation comes more than five years after several people were killed at her concert at Manchester Arena.
On May 22, 2017, a suicide bomber detonated a bomb in the arena lobby near the end of his show, killing 22 people and injuring over 500 others.
After the fatal incident, Grande suspended the rest of her “Dangerous Woman” tour and took a two-week hiatus.
Although the bombing left Grande devastated, she returned to Manchester the following month to host a star-studded benefit concert, which included performances by herself as well as Chris Martin, Mac Miller, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.
Grande, who hosted the sold-out event, helped raise more than $13 million for the victims and their families.
Since the tragedy, the two-time Grammy winner hasn’t stopped honoring the victims. Last year, she penned a touching tribute to the 22 victims.
“Although grief is always present and our relationship with it is constantly evolving and expressing itself in different ways every day, all year round,” Grande wrote on her Instagram Stories last May.
“I know this anniversary will never be easy. Know that I am thinking of you today. Manchester, my heart is with you today and always,” she added, including the names of the 22 victims of the attack.
