Each year, your generous support helps us to bring Christmas to our hospitals, putting smiles on the faces of our staff and patients who are in hospital over the festive period.

Being in hospital at Christmas is never easy, but this year is going to be particularly difficult for our patients as they will be unable to have their loved ones visit them.

For our staff, the past year has been the hardest that they have faced in the NHS.

This is why, more than ever, we need your support at Christmas, to bring a little festive joy to our hospitals. Whether that's funding a hamper for our staff and patients to enjoy on Christmas Day, or funding Christmas trees to brighten up our hospitals, your support can make a difference.

Get involved this year by taking part in Festive Jumper Day on Friday 11 December. Wear your best Festive Jumper and donate a minimum of £1 to our campaign.

If you fancy getting active then get involved in our Reindeer Run! Walk, jog or run and raise vital funds for our hospitals this Christmas.

You can fundraise in whichever way you would like to, just make sure to stick to the really important social distancing guidelines that are there to keep us all safe!

Your donations to our page will make a huge difference. Here are just some of the amazing items and projects that your donation will help to fund.

£5 will buy a chocolate selection box for children who are receiving treatment over the Christmas period, helping to cheer them up and get them in the festive spirit.

£10 will buy a toy for a child or young person at the hospital as a gift from Santa, whether they are a tot or a teen they will receive a gift which is just right for them.

£15 will fund activities for our older patients, including those with dementia, who will be in hospital over Christmas. These activities are proven to keep patients entertained, engaged and calm.

£12 will fund a place for a child at one of the special Christmas Parties held for those children who are in hospital over Christmas, or who are looked after by our Community Nurses.

£8 will fund a special Christmas Prematurity Pack for our tiny babies who are not quite big enough to go home for their first Christmas, and for their parents who will be by their side.

£25 will fund one night's stay for a family at Fisher House, the home away from home for military patients and their families at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

£50 will buy a hamper full of delicious festive food and drink for staff on a ward to share on Christmas Day.

About the charity
