A huge thank you to everyone for their fantastic support for our 2015 Christmas Giftree appeal; you really helped to brighten the day for patients who were with us over the festive period
The Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust's Voluntary Services Manager, Lynn Baylis, was overwhelmed by the generosity of the public and staff to the Royal Berkshire Hospital’s 2015 Christmas Giftree appeal.
Lynn said: “Thank you to everyone who supported the Giftree appeal. People are always very generous, but last month I received an outstanding number of fabulous gifts, including some lovely toiletries, shaving kits and stationery for our older patients, along with plenty of toys, colouring pens and books for our younger ones. There were so many that I was able to deliver presents to 12 of our wards, four more than last year.
“The Giftree appeal is held every year in the run up to Christmas to make sure as many patients as possible who are with us on Christmas Day have a gift to unwrap.”
