UHNM Charity Virtual Christmas Appeal

Why we need your help

2020 has been a year like no other, and has seen our hospitals and their staff have to adapt and make changes like never before. It also means that Christmas 2020 is going to be very different for us all.

In previous years, generous individuals, businesses and community groups donate gifts to patients and staff at the Royal Stoke University Hospital and County Hospital in Stafford. But this year, festive drop-offs cannot take place as usual due to Covid-19 restrictions within the hospitals. 


UHNM Charity is asking supporters to make a donation online or by text rather than in person.  

We want to spread some festive cheer during these very difficult times to both our patients and our staff, and are asking anyone who wants to donate gifts to join our appeal and support by donating online.



2020 has been a year like no other and has seen our hospitals and their staff have to adapt and make changes like never before. It also means that Christmas 2020 is going to be very different for us all.
Each year we are so grateful to our local community for their incredible support and generosity to help bring some festive joy to our staff and patients but this year because of Coronavirus we need to think a little differently. To help keep everyone safe, regrettably this year we will be unable to accept the generous offers of toys, presents and sweet treats that are usually brought into our hospitals each year.
Of course we still need to ensure that Christmas is still a wonderful time of year for our patients but we need your help. We are asking you to make a donation so that our staff can buy gifts on your behalf that will be meaningful to their patients.
UHNM Charity is aiming to deliver over a thousand Christmas gifts to all our patients, both young and old, staying in our hospitals over the festive period. We rely heavily on the fantastic support from our local community and by donating to our appeal you will help to make a real difference to our patients,
Christmas is usually a wonderful time of year filled with family, friends and festivities. Sadly, hundreds of people in our local area spend their Christmas in hospital. For families, it’s hard to see a child having to spend the day in a clinical setting away from home. For others, it can be an incredibly lonely time, with no family or visitors at all. A gift from UHNM Charity can help bring some festive cheer to patients in our care at this tim
