Be a Santa to a Se­nior

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

Peter­bor­ough City Hos­pi­tal is ap­peal­ing for res­i­dents to do­nate gifts for pen­sion­ers spend­ing Christ­mas on the wards.

The ‘Be Santa to a Se­nior’ cam­paign will en­sure all el­derly pa­tients re­ceive a present on Christ­mas day.

Jo Ben­nis, Chief Nurse at North West Anglia NHS Foun­da­tion Trust said: “We know that for some pa­tients, Christ­mas can be a par­tic­u­larly lonely time, es­pe­cially if they do not have any vis­i­tors or fam­ily nearby to visit them in hos­pi­tal. With our ‘Be Santa to a Se­nior’ cam­paign, we hope to brighten their day with a gift and en­sure they still en­joy Christ­mas, de­spite be­ing in hos­pi­tal.”

Res­i­dents can ei­ther make a dona­tion via a MyDonate page or by do­nat­ing an un­wrapped gift from our Ama­zon wish­list. To see the wish­list visit www.ama­zon. and type in North West Anglia NHS Foun­da­tion Trust.
