Our 2016 Christmas Cracker winners
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, throughout December we are awarding £35,000 worth of grants to departments and community services across North Bristol NHS Trust as part of our Christmas Appeal .
We received nearly 80 applications for the Cracker awards from staff – ranging from requests for a few £100, to proposals to buy equipment costing several thousand. Staff were asked to apply for the Awards to buy medical equipment that will enhance and improve the experience of our patients.
Our warmest congratulations to all of our Christmas Cracker winners. We'll be updating this page daily with details of all of our winners, and you'll also find regular news on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
