Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Charity

Together we can help make this Christmas extra special!

This year has been extremely challenging for our Trust, patients and staff. More so than ever we need to keep the magic of Christmas alive, for our patients who find themselves in hospital over the Christmas period and to say thank you to our NHS colleagues who go above and beyond 365 days each year.

 

See below for a number of options for you, your organisation or company to help Give a Gift this Christmas.

 

GIVE a GIFT this Christmas

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to accept donations of gifts/toys into our hospitals like we usually do, so instead we have created an Amazon Wish list, which contains toys and gifts carefully selected by our team of wonderful Play Therapists.

Selecting and making a donation through our Amazon Wish list is really easy, and once you place your order the items will be delivered directly to us. Please don't forget to write a message and let us know you have purchased the items so we can thank you!

Visit our Amazon Wishlist by clicking on the image here:  

 

Charity Christmas Cards

We have partnered with Care Cards and will receive at least 25% donation for every purchase, helping to fund our Christmas Gifts and additional extras this year.
