Colleagues at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) supported Festive Sock Day on Monday 4 December in an effort to raise money for the Trust’s charity.
To date a fantastic £382 has been raised which will contribute to the charities overall festive fundraising appeal, where funds are raised to support patients and colleagues throughout the festive period.
The majority of colleagues at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, Bassetlaw Hospitals and Montagu Hospital wear uniforms, scrubs, and lots of PPE designed to keep patients safe so they cannot wear a Christmas jumper.
In response, the charity came up with ‘Festive Sock Day’ so everyone can join in with a colourful pair of socks or tights and walk alongside their NHS heroes for the day.
As part of this years celebrations and with the support of our Charity Partners, Albemarle Homes, we held a fundraising competition for the team/ department who raised the most funds to win a special wreath making workshop at their Westmoor Grange development in their stunning Cavendish Show home.
The lucky winners from our Radiology department, raise a fantastic £237 towards the event alongside two of the house builders Instagram competition winners.
The VIP workshop, led by Laura from The Florist, was a great way to bring the community together. All our VIPs enjoyed a merry evening of Christmas wreath making filled with laughter, mulled wine, and some delicious homemade mince pies.
A spokes person from Albemarle Homes said, “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to making the event a resounding success. Through such initiatives and, extending a warm welcome to community members, we are pleased to continue our aim of not just building homes but creating friendly and connected communities.
In the spirit of giving, we are also proud to continue our charity partnership with the Doncaster & Bassetlaw NHS Charity, whereby for every home sold at Westmoor Grange, Albemarle Homes donates £100 to the charity.”
