Appeal aims to give the gift of cheer

Rob George 23rd Nov, 2021

WORCESTERSHIRE Acute Hospitals Charity has launched its Christmas appeal ‘Wonders of Worcestershire’.

The appeal will ask for support in helping the charity to spread wonder to the patients, families and staff of Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust this festive season and into the New Year.

The hospital charity wants to provide ‘Wonders of Worcestershire’ to highlight the incredible work and commitment of NHS staff, as well as spread a little Christmas cheer throughout its hospitals for both our staff and patients.

All funds raised by the appeal will be spent on those added extras which can make the working day easier, the service more comfortable or the experience less difficult.

For example, a donation of £5 could pay for two comfort packs for family members who have to unexpectedly stay at the hospital with their loved ones overnight.

A £10 donation could pay for a set of games, puzzles or activity books for the trust’s play service to keep children entertained on the wards while £25 could pay for a bespoke end of treatment cake for young cancer patients.

Cold weather gear for our staff manning the outside COVID-safe drive through treatment pods could be possible with a donation of £50.

Speaking about the new appeal charity engagement officer Lucy Brown said: “We are delighted to launch our Wonders of Worcestershire appeal which focuses on the wonderful things our hospital staff and charity team have achieved over the past year as they focus on putting patients first in everything they do.

“Any donation no matter what size will help to support the patients, staff and services of our hospitals throughout the festive period and into the new year.”
