Donate A Gift This Christmas

The Send a Smile with Santa campaign encourages local people, businesses and organisations to donate Christmas presents for patients who will be too poorly to leave hospital and celebrate Christmas at home with their loved ones.

Packaging your gift
Please can your gift be unwrapped or placed in a gift bag. This means the hospital can ensure the products are safe and appropriate before they are wrapped and passed on to the wards.

Things we cannot accept
To prevent infection, we will only be able to accept new items in their original packaging and not wrapped in paper. All purchased food products must be in a sealed package and still in date for 25th  December 2017. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept edible homemade gifts (cakes, sweets etc), electrical items, used books, candles, old DVDs or VHS tapes; sharp objects such as knives or tools, denominational or religious material.

Donations of wrapping paper and gift bags are useful too.
