Christmas Raises Over £20,000!

We’re very chuffed to announce that we’ve raised just over £20,000 from our Christmas activity.  Thanks to everyone who supported us.

“We are absolutely delighted that thanks to our very generous donors and supporters we raised £20,200 from our Christmas Appeal and activity.” Explains our Trusts and Major Donor Manager, Liz Bond.

“We launched our Christmas activity in the middle of November and our aim was to raise enough money to buy every patient in hospital over Christmas a present which we achieved.

“We want to thank everyone who donated money, and who knitted teddies for our babies, and who donated Christmas socks to our patients.  We’re also grateful to all of the performers who took part in our Buskathon in support of the Appeal, and to our partners John Lewis who hosted a whole weekend of buskers for us.  We also want to thank staff here at North Bristol NHS Trust who hosted cake sales, and the team behind the Charity float which toured north Bristol and raised money for our Emergency Department.

“We had a hectic December but it was well worth it!"

Money raised went towards buying Christmas gifts for patients and boxes of Christmas cheer for all the wards here at Southmead Hospital.  It also went towards supporting our departments across the Hospital.

“Nobody would choose to be in hospital over Christmas so we just wanted to make it a little better for our patients and staff.” Adds Liz.

We’re now planning this year’s events and would love to hear from you if you’d like to fundraise for us to help make 2017 special for Southmead. Please contact for further information or take a look here for fundraising inspiration.
