Send a Smile with Santa

Christmas is the MOST wonderful time of year.

With your help, for the children and older patients in our hospitals, we can keep it that way.

Help to give a little magic: Send a Smile to someone in hospital this Christmas.

How to make your Christmas mean a little more

By donating to our Send a Smile with Santa appeal, you’ll be helping to keep patients smiling this Christmas.

There are two ways you can do this:

  • Give a gift

Our elves have put together a wish list of gifts after speaking to hospital staff, full of all the things patients would like and find most useful. You can choose to buy for a young patient or an older patient. The delivery deadline for gifts to be at our office (Barts Charity, 12 Cock Lane, London, EC1A 9BU) is 6th December.

  • Give money

100% of your donation will help the Children’s Play Team and the Older People’s Services across all the hospitals we support to deliver the most extraordinary care possible, not just this Christmas but into 2018 too. Giving money is a special way to make your Christmas gift last longer.
