WMAHSN preparing for a merry Friday in support of UHB Charity's Festive Jumper Day

Posted on 10 December 2019 (Permalink)

Hospital staff across Birmingham are rummaging through their wardrobes for their best (or worst) Christmas attire in preparation for Festive Jumper Day on Friday 13 December.

In what has become a beloved modern tradition, staff members across University Hospitals Birmingham will be donning festive jumpers, socks or flashing badges in order to raise money to support their patients over the festive period.

Each Christmas, University Hospitals Birmingham Charity raises money to provide ‘added extras’ for patients and visitors across the hospitals over Christmas. From beautiful trees at the entrances to the hospital, to toys for children being treated for cancer, the hospital charity is delighted to be able to bring a little magic to patients across the Trust each year.

This is only possible thanks to the generosity of all of those who dig deep and help to support the Charity, whether by taking part in Festive Jumper Day or by buying a Virtual Gift for a patient on the Charity’s Virtual Shop at virtualchristmas.org

Sophie Carroll, Senior Fundraiser at QEHB Charity, said: “Last year, hundreds of people took part in Festive Jumper Day and helped us to raise over £8,000 for patients at UHB and we would love for you to join us this year! Whether it’s at work or in the community, wear your Christmas clothing with pride on Friday 13 December and donate £1 to support our patients across the Trust.”
