Thank you to everyone who Sent a Smile with Santa!

10 Jan 2013

A huge thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Appeal ‘Send a Smile with Santa’. We received hundreds of gifts in support of the appeal, from books and toys to clothes and Christmas trees and decorations. This is a fantastic achievement and one that was greatly appreciated by each and every patient.


At the Children’s and Mile End Hospitals, many young and elderly patients spent the holidays away from home. For the children, your support brought a little bit of a magic to an otherwise difficult time. At Mile End Hospital we were able to give a gift to every patient, making their Christmas a truly special one.


The overwhelming support that we received for the Christmas Appeal was brilliant. Thank you to each and every one of our supporters who made ‘Send a Smile with Santa’ a massive success, we couldn’t have done it without you!


A mum of a two year old child with sickle cell, who was in hospital on Christmas day said:
“Of course being in hospital on Christmas day is a sad time, but it was a lovely surprise to receive a present… it made my daughter happy”.
