Christmas wishlist to bring smiles to patients this Christmas

Date: 30 November 2023

Christmas wish list

The Medway Hospital Charity has set up an online gift wishlist to bring cheer to patients this festive season.

Donating through the Amazon wishlist makes it easy for you to support patients from the comfort of your own home.

Each item has been carefully picked by our hospital staff and all presents will be delivered directly to the hospital, with prices starting at just £2.59.

Items on the wishlist include toys, books, puzzles, snuggly blankets and games. The most expensive item is a video projector at £339.99 and the cheapest are pencil sharpeners at £2.59.

Donna Law, Charity and Fundraising Manager, said: “We are extremely grateful for all donations received. We know times are tough for many people at the moment but if you can spare a few extra pounds this Christmas our patients will really appreciate it.

Last year’s wishlist was a huge success with more than 100 items donated by our generous community and we were able to deliver your gifts to the children’s ward, children’s community and outreach team, maternity department and wards caring for older patients.

“These presents make a huge difference to patients in hospital at Christmas because it’s always nice to know someone is thinking of you.”

Gifts will be delivered directly to the hospital and delivered to patients during the Christmas period.

Gifts can be posted to The Medway Hospital Charity, Office 2 ME.153, Main Reception, Medway Maritime Hospital, Windmill Road, Gillingham, Kent ME7 5NY or you can drop them off at the volunteer desk in the hospital’s main reception.
