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.

- Tell your work colleagues, school mates, neighbours, family and friends and encourage them to join you or sponsor you.
- Get in touch to tell us your plans and don’t forget to take lots of photos.
- Donate the funds you raise via Just Giving or find out more ways to donate.
