After all the challenges and difficulties 2020 has brought, staff want to give those who are spending the festive season in hospital something nice to look forward to on the big day.

The Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Charity, who operate across Royal Preston Hospital and Chorley Hospital, wants to ensure all patients who are in hospital on Christmas Day receive a small gift.

In previous years, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals has received kind donations of toys and gifts at Christmas for patients of all ages from the local community.

Unfortunately, the festive toy and gift drops cannot take place this year due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Instead, the hospitals are doing things a little differently, with the Charity team instead asking for a small donation towards a patient gift.

Ward Manager and Staff Governor at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Anneen Carlisle said: “Nobody wants to be in hospital over Christmas, which is why this is such an important initiative led by our fantastic charity team. 

“Even a small donation can help us to ensure every one of our patients receives a gift to brighten up their Christmas Day. As a Trust, we have been overwhelmed by acts of kindness from the local community, and now we are asking for some festive cheer by way of a small gift for those who really need it the most.”
