Christmas Wish Lists
Show you care this Christmas with a special gift for a patient
We’ve worked in collaboration with Leeds Teaching Hospitals to provide you with a list of ‘most wanted’ gifts. Your donation will help spread festive cheer to over 2,000 people from across Leeds, Yorkshire and beyond spending Christmas in hospital; including children and teenagers, adults and the elderly.
To ensure your gift can be used in a Hospital environment please do not wrap your donations as they will need to be checked for suitability.
