A stay in hospital at any time can be difficult........, but its particularly hard at Christmas

Please help us provide some festive cheer to our patients who find themselves in hospital this Christmas.

With your support we can add a little sparkle and some festive silliness to their stay, whether through activities to keep patients entertained, or some treats and snacks or small gifts to make them feel special.

We welcome any support you can give at this difficult time for so many and we are so grateful for the support our community has shown to us. As an NHS charity we are here to try and improve the patient experience. No-one plans to be in hospital over Christmas so please help us to make it a little special for those who are in our care during this period.

There is a way to support that matches any budget:

  • Make a donation- this could be instead of sending Christmas Cards, or in memory of a loved one.
  • Amazon Wishlist - buy a small gift for a patient this Christmas. 
  • Fundraise through an activity or event - you can set up a personalised fundraising page for our Christmas Appeal. 
  • Christmas Draw - £1 a ticket. With a top prize of £500, and further prizes of a luxury hamper, toiletries and many other goodies to be won, if you would like to be in with a chance of winning then please request some tickets via the Fundraising Office 01322 428392 or [email protected]

The winners will be drawn on Wednesday 13th December, so you could have the money in time for Christmas! 

Many thanks for your support.


Any donations over that required to fund our Christmas activities will be held in our Friends Fund for the benefit of patient care, spent where the need is greatest throughout the year.
