Could you be our Santa Claus?

25th August 2020

Can you believe there is just 4 months to go until Christmas? No, us neither.

We have lots of exciting plans, but need your help in order to make them happen. We are looking for partners to support with funding our ideas. Can you help us make Christmas at George’s the memorable, joyful and grateful time?  

Christmas is always a challenging time in a hospital, whether you are a patient or a member of staff.  As we begin to reflect on the crisis of the Covid-19 pandemic we feel it is important to make the festive season even more special than ever before – not only for our patients, but for all the amazing NHS staff who have lived through a year like no other.

This year at St George’s Hospital Charity, we want to bring festive cheer into our wards, waiting rooms, restaurants and reception areas of both St George’s and Queen Mary’s Hospitals. We want to thank our amazing staff for caring and working instead of being at home with their families. And we want to ensure that every patient who spends Christmas in our hospitals receives a small gift – for some people this might be the only gift they receive.

Staff Nurse on Benjamin Weir Ward said “You certainly brought a lot of joy to our ward during Christmas and New Year in 2019! It made the hospital stay for our patients and staff who worked during the festive period just a little bit more enjoyable.”

So, how can you help?

We are looking for a sponsor(s) who also feel the time is right to say a massive thank you to the doctors, consultants, nurses, porters, lab technicians and more who have sacrificed so much during 2020.

With your help we can ensure we are able to place Christmas tree’s throughout the hospital, give out small and thoughtful gifts to every patient spending Christmas in our hospitals, give the wonderful staff an opportunity to enjoy a small Christmas get together and work with our Arts team to invite festive performers onto the wards*.
