Peterborough City Hospital is appealing for residents to donate gifts for pensioners spending Christmas on the wards.
The ‘Be Santa to a Senior’ campaign will ensure all elderly patients receive a present on Christmas day.
Jo Bennis, Chief Nurse at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust said: “We know that for some patients, Christmas can be a particularly lonely time, especially if they do not have any visitors or family nearby to visit them in hospital. With our ‘Be Santa to a Senior’ campaign, we hope to brighten their day with a gift and ensure they still enjoy Christmas, despite being in hospital.”
Residents can either make a donation via a MyDonate page or by donating an unwrapped gift from the Amazon wishlist. Type in North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust.
