Do your bit in a festive knit for our Charity

Will you join us in donning your favourite festive fashion on Friday 9th December, to raise funds for our family of hospitals this Christmas?

Whether you’re at home, school or work, it’s really easy to get involved while showing off your very best holiday attire. Simply donate £2 and join with colleagues, classmates, friends, and family – virtually or in person.

Your support will enable our Charity to continue to fund important projects, so we can enhance the services and care we provide across our family of hospitals.

Don’t worry if you don’t own a Christmas jumper – anything Christmassy counts! So if a festive knit or jolly jumper is not for you then how about a tinselly t-shirt, sparkly socks or happy headwear!

Find out more about how you can get involved and sign up through the Charity website here.
