Will you help put a smile on someone's face?
The A&E department is consistently full over the colder months, and staff have even less time, often without breaks. £5 could help provide support and refreshments for staff to keep them going during this busy season
£10 could buy a gift set to make a patient feel refreshed and pampered while in hospital
£15 could buy 15 activity packs or toys to keep children entertained during busy hospital appointments over Christmas
£20 could buy an electronic game or headphones making hospital more bearable for a teenager stuck in hospital over Christmas
£25 could treat a patient to a soothing hand massage or manicure at their bedside, distracting them from pain or distress
£30 could help buy special sensory play equipment to amuse and delight a child in hospital over Christmas
£36 could buy a set of warm clothes for an elderly patient. Changing out of pyjamas and into clothes has been proven to encourage movement and boost spirits, allowing patients to get back home and into their normal routine as quickly as possible
£50 could help fund innovations like the MyICUvoice app that gives voiceless intensive care patients a crucial tool to communicate with their families at this special time of year
£100 could give 5 children with cancer an hour of therapeutic play to help make hospital less stressful over Christmas
