Fundraising events

We have a range of fundraising events planned to help raise money so that we can invest in improving patient care and experience.

Christmas wish list

Date: Ongoing until Christmas
Details: Christmas is usually the most wonderful time of year. A time to spend celebrating with family and friends, decorating a tree, giving and receiving gifts and watching festive movies on the sofa. 

But imagine if you had to spend time alone in hospital instead. Christmas can be difficult for our patients as they spent time away from their families.

You can help spread the love by donating an extra gift for one of our patients. 

To donate goodies from the wish list, simply log into Amazon, purchase what you would like to donate from the wish list and they will be posted directly to us.

National Elf Service Week

Date: 11 to 17 December 2023
Details: Do you want to be on Santa’s ‘nice’ list this year? 

Here’s how you can take part in Elf Service Week:

  1. Whether you are at home, school or work, we are encouraging elves young and old to swap your school uniforms, work suits or stay-at-home joggers for your glitziest jumpers, reindeer antlers, funky socks or seasonal fancy dress – anything goes!
  2. Tell your work colleagues, school mates, neighbours, family and friends and encourage them to join you or sponsor you.
  3. Get in touch to tell us your plans and don’t forget to take lots of photos.
  4. Donate the funds you raise via Just Giving or find out more ways to donate.

Rotherham Polar Plunge

Time: From 10am
Location: Manvers Lake, Wath-Upon-Dearne, Rotherham

Whether you're a seasoned cold-water enthusiast or a first time plunger, this event is designed for everyone who's ready to make a splash for charity. We are working with experts from The Breath Connection to bring you this chilly challenge. 

Fundraisers will take a dip in the icy waters at Manvers in November where you will learn the art of cold water dipping, breath work and the wellbeing benefits of cold water. 

We believe that bravery deserves recognition - hot drinks and certificates await our boldest plungers. So, gather your friends, form a team, and let's see who can make the biggest splash.

You’ll need to leave winter warmers at the water side and no wetsuits are allowed.

It costs £25 to take part and we’d like you to raise a minimum of £50. 

Register for your place.
