Launched several years ago, we have worked with many businesses, colleges and schools to deliver presents to many hospitals in the Yorkshire region every single year.
Unfortunately, due to the unprecedented year we have had, for the safety of not only our supporters, but of our team members and those in hospital we had to change the way we worked this year and created a Justgiving campaign to collect donation pledges instead of actual gifts. We know its not as magical as donating an actual gift, but we knew our supporters would not let us down!
We are extremely happy and grateful for the truly amazing support pledges we have received this year. Our Justgiving Appeal raised a fabulous £2380 plus an extra £343.50 in Gift Aid, resulting in a final total of £2723.50, which was rounded up to ensure we could make a £500 donation for Christmas gifts to the children’s wards of each of the following hospitals:
- Calderdale Royal Hospital
- Bradford Royal Infirmary
- Dewsbury District Hospital
- Leeds Children’s Hospital
- Pinderfields Hospital
- Airedale Hospital
- and Eckersley House, who provide free accommodation to families with children in hospital.
We would like to thank each and every person that donated. We appreciate that many have been suffering this year from reduced income or loss of their employment as well as sadly losing loved ones. Every penny raised from the appeal and a little extra was used to buy gifts to children who were in hospital over Christmas and the New Year. You’ve helped to bring a smile to a child’s face at at time of great adversity, we pass on their thanks for each and every donation.
