Comfort and joy to Children on our wards Every Christmas, our local communities make festive toy and gift drops for children at the hospitals. Sadly, this year is different. COVID-19 restrictions mean the traditional toy drops cannot take place – but there is an alternative, by giving a virtual gift. Your Christmas donations can be used to purchase toys and gifts carefully chosen by our amazing team of Play Specialists – so there is still time to raise a smile on the faces of our younger patients. Whether your gift helps us to buy a team of festive teddy bears, some arts and crafts materials so that younger patients can get creative while in hospital, or a piece of sensory equipment to help distract and entertain, we will be working hard to ensure that their Christmas still feels special. As well as funding the little extras, with your help, our charity also makes the hospital environments more welcoming for our younger patients and provides our talented clinicians with the very best medical equipment. Please help us to sprinkle some seasonal magic on our wards this Christmas and throughout the year.
