Northamptonshire Health Charity supports your local hospitals including Northampton General and all of the community hospitals in the county. We work all year round to provide for all departments and wards, above and beyond what the NHS can deliver. At Christmas we make sure every inpatient receives a present as we know that there are many patients, mostly elderly, that have nobody – this means no visitors and no gift on Christmas Day. Each year we are humbled by the generosity and kindness of the local community in helping us to achieve this. Remember, it isn’t only children that are in hospital over Christmas, adults are too and they are often the ones that get forgotten when it comes to presents. Last year, we were able to offer every patient in hospital on the day a gift bag containing items, which helped to make a huge difference to them.
We would welcome items such as puzzle books, slippers and socks, toiletries, lip balms and dominos, to toys, games and activities for our Children’s Wards and for the Short Break Centres in the county. For infection control purposes can you please ensure that the items are new, in the original packaging and not gift wrapped, so that we can make sure that gifts are allocated appropriately. With your help we can make sure that no one is forgotten at Christmas. Your donation can help bring a smile to someone’s face this Christmas day. Thank you.
