This year we are pleased to welcome you back to Lister Hospital to deliver your kind donations for poorly children staying on our wards over Easter.

You will be able to drop off your Easter donations at a pre-booked slot Monday 25 March - Thursday 28 March with 6 slots available 9:30am - 3:30pm.

Please note, gifts must be:

  • Brand new, individual gifts or eggs, in original packaging 
  • Appropriate for children 0-16 years old

At the bottom of this page you will find the available appointment slots to come and visit the grotto. Unfortunately, these are the only appointments we will be able to offer this year. They will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please book quickly before they go. Please arrive promptly at the time of your scheduled visit to allow for the smooth running of the grotto.

We will only be able to invite a maximum of 6 visitors per slot to deliver Easter gifts and get a picture with our paediatric team if available.

Details concerning the location of the Easter donations within Lister Hospital will be sent out to visitors closer to the event.

Important info

Before you visit our Easter Grotto please complete our Gift in Kind form so that we can keep a record of your kind donations.

Friendly reminder: Please do not come on site if you have had any recent flu-like symptoms or Covid-19 symptoms and please do not visit the hospital site unannounced with gifts if you haven't booked an appointment slot.
