Throughout December, a host of local companies have shown their support for us and the patients in their local hospitals.

A team from Career Moves (main image) continued their amazing support for us as their charity of the year for 2016 by helping to decorate the older people’s wards at The Royal London.

Volunteers from Mount Anvil (pictured - smaller image, top) helped the children’s Play Team transform the wards into a winter wonderland.

The older patients of Wards 14E and 14F were also treated to a choral performance by a choir from CMS (pictured - smaller image, second).

Lawyers by day, singers by night – the group wowed patients, families and staff with renditions of a range of Christmas carols.

Bank of Montreal (pictured - smaller image, third) got involved with the “big wrap”, helping to wrap all the presents that you’ve helped provide for patients this year as part of our #SendaSmile with Santa Christmas appeal.

And staff of CME Group (pictured - smaller image, fourth) got creative in the children’s Healing Space, helping to put together Santa’s grotto ready for the Christmas party.

“We’ve had some amazing support from local companies, really helping to brighten Christmas for the children and older people in the hospitals we support,” said Ellie Francis, our Events and Fundraising Manager.

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of them; support from the local community makes such a difference to us and the patients, especially this time of year.”
