Southmead Hospital Charity Christmas


We have lots of exciting events planned this Christmas to spread some festive cheer in the hospital and across our community. Please join us for any of our events and support your hospitals this Christmas. 

Your donations will enable us to contunue our work in funding projects that are already making a huge difference to the lives of patients and their families. With your help this Christmas we can fund:

  • Pioneering research into new treatments 
  • Innovative new equipment to save lives and improve outcomes 
  • Supportive and therapeutic projects for patients, their families and carers 
  • Improvements to our buildings and spaces 
  • Projects that promote the wellbeing of NHS staff 

And this Christmas thanks to your donations we will be giving each patient who is in hosptial on Christmas Day a gift bag. Thanks to our partnership with Usborne Books each baby born on Christmas day will receive a first Christmas cloth book.  

Here are some of the ways you can support us this Christmas.
