Overwhelmed with Christmas spirit!

Thank you so much to everyone who got involved this Christmas.
You have made it our best to date! We simply cannot say thank you enough.
Thank you to everyone who donated to Southampton Hospital Chairty this year. Your donation will go to the area within the hospital where it is needed the most. We can use this money to buy specialist equipment, ward improvements and refurbishments, support for our patients, family and staff, plus support pioneering research.
This year has also seen many gifts bought from our Amazon wishlists ( which have now all gone out to the appropriate areas. The smaller gifts for our patients work perfectly as distraction tools during tests and scans, or to mark end of treatments.
Donating a gift to a patient from our Wishlist means so much to those who receive them. For those who are long term patients, or rushed into hospital may not otherwise get a gift at Christmas, so thank you for helping to spread some festive cheer!
