Even during the toughest of times, there are special celebrations taking place in our hospitals.

The Chaplaincy Team at the Churchill Hospital’s Oxford Cancer and Haematology Centre asked the charity to help them create 12 beautiful wedding boxes.

This means that when a patient receiving care wants to get married in hospital and time is of the essence, a ceremony can quickly be organised helping to make a special event for the couple.

The wedding boxes – each containing a ring cushion, champagne flutes, confetti, a beautiful card, garlands, balloons and bunting to decorate the bedside, as well as a keepsake box, have now been created.

Revd Cara Heafey, Chaplain at the Churchill Hospital, said: ‘The boxes were inspired by a ward that went above and beyond at very short notice, to help make a couple’s wedding in hospital a very special occasion.

‘Weddings in hospital happen more than you would imagine, and are often organised with very little time. It is wonderful to now have everything we need on hand to make these occasions as special as possible for the couples.’

This is one of the many ways the charity is able to support staff in our hospitals who go the extra mile for our patients.

And of course, this is only possible thanks to the generosity of our special charity supporters.
