Christmas is a time for warmth, joy, and togetherness, yet for many people in hospital, the festive season can be an isolating experience.

At Mildmay, for patients who cannot return home during this special time, we strive to make a difference by bringing a glimmer of happiness into their lives through our Presents for Patients Christmas Appeal.

To brighten our patients spirits, we aim to provide them with modest yet meaningful gifts. These include items such as cosy pyjamas, small treats like toiletries, or simple indulgences to brighten their day.

Our commitment extends beyond those who remain within our care during Christmas. Patients who are discharged between Christmas and New Year, especially those residing alone or in hostels without nearby family support, will receive a thoughtful hamper to accompany them as they transition back to their daily lives.

The success of this heartwarming initiative depends greatly on the support and generosity of individuals like you. For the third consecutive year, we turn to our compassionate friends and dedicated supporters, urging you to contribute to our Christmas Appeal.

Thanks to your incredible generosity last year, we received nearly £10,000 in donations at Christmas. This meant that each patient received a special gift during the festive period. Moreover, the surplus funds were utilised to extend our support to these patients in the New Year.

This year, as we launch our 2023 Presents for Patients Christmas Appeal, we aspire to match, or even surpass, the remarkable achievement of the previous year. Your contributions will not only bring smiles and comfort to patients but also provide essential support as they navigate the challenges beyond the holiday season.

Your support is invaluable in making a genuine difference in the lives of those who need it most. By joining hands with Mildmay Mission Hospital and contributing to our Presents for Patients appeal, you play an integral role in spreading joy and goodwill during this festive season.

Let us come together to make Christmas a brighter and more meaningful time for every patient at Mildmay Mission Hospital. Your kindness can truly light up someone's Christmas and bring a sense of warmth and belonging to those who need it most.
