Give a Gift Appeal
Sam was an inpatient in our Elderly Ward in 2022. With no family near, he was looking at no visitors coming to see him and a very lonely Christmas Day. Sam received a gift of a scarf and a shower gel gift pack from the Charity Team. Sam was so grateful to have been thought of – it really made his day. The Nurse in Charge reported that he was smiling all day and would not take his scarf off!
Sadia was in our cardiac ward and was surrounded by loving family. Although Sadia does not celebrate Christmas, when she received a gift from us she was overwhelmed that she had been thought of. Her gift of vegan chocolates went down a storm with her and her family.
Would you like to make a patient smile on Christmas Day? Well, you can – by purchasing a gift for a patient this year!
As a Trust we do everything we can to ensure as many patients can go home for Christmas Day, or any other day of the year; however, for those few who are not well enough to go home at the end of the year, our Charity works hard to help make their stay that little bit brighter by providing a small gift. Even if you do not celebrate Christmas, we still provide a gift to brighten your day. It is the little things that really make the difference.
By supporting us and purchasing a gift you will make a patient’s day over this festive season.
Why not use this opportunity to build bonds and relationships with your co-workers, friends or family and work together to support a ward this year. It does not have to be much and we are so grateful for all the support we receive.
