Christmas Stocking Appeal
Bring seasonal cheer to children this Christmas
We’re inviting everyone with an interest in supporting sick children to send a message of support and encouragement, using the Christmas stocking template below.
This December, children from across the South West and South Wales will unexpectedly find themselves arriving at Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St Michael’s Hospital. Others will have already been in the hospital a while and will be too ill to go home for Christmas. And with such a wide geographical reach, parents can find themselves far away from their home and their families at a time intended for being together.
Show sick children and their families just how much you care this festive season by writing a message on one of our Christmas stockings. Simply download your stocking below, write your message of support and encouragement and send it back to 'Freepost THE GRAND APPEAL'.
Your stocking will be displayed in the hospital and in our family accommodation, adding a splash of festive colour. But more importantly, it will show families in hospital that they’re not alone this Christmas.
Along with your personal message, you may also choose to send a much-needed donation. The Grand Appeal needs to raise £2 million each year in order to provide the specialist support we offer Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St Michael’s Hospital. It’s only thanks to the generosity of people like you that this is possible.
Thank you for taking the time to show you care this Christmas.
