The difference we make Gifting a smile Christmas 2020 The Christmas spirit certainly wasn't dampened by the pandemic. Our wonderful community rallied round and made sure we had gifts for all the patients, young and old, who will be spending Christmas in hospital as well as some well-deserved treats for the NHS staff working over the festive period. We are incredibly grateful to all the individuals, groups and companies who have generously donated funds, donated gifts, decorated wards and volunteered time to help spread some Christmas joy across our hospitals. We would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
