Toys & Gifts

Donating Toys & Gifts 

Giving toys, games, treats or other presents for patients is a kind thought and we’re so grateful that your thinking about us, but the best gift that you can give your hospitals is a donation – no matter how big or small!

What difference could my donation make?

Every donation to Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Charity counts. And they add up to make an even bigger difference for our patients and colleagues. Your support could:

  • Improve and update hospital buildings and facilities
  • Help us invest in brand new life-changing specialist equipment
  • Fund projects that improve the health and wellbeing of our colleagues who work tirelessly to care for our loved ones
  • Fund the small things which make a big difference to our patients such as care packages for patients who come to hospital with no belongings or teddy bears for children spending the night at hospital.

What if I’d still like to donate a gift?

Please get in touch with our Charity Team first to discuss your ideas. We try to make sure that any offers of gifts-in-kind are genuinely needed, and we will take the advice of our colleagues before accepting your donation. You can also purchase gifts directly from our Amazon Wishlist’s below. 

Please note, for health and safety and infection control reasons, we are generally unable to accept

  • Second-hand clothes, toys or games
  • Second-hand books or used magazines

If you would like to donate for our children’s ward, gifts for the very young, (e.g. babies) and older children (e.g. teenagers) are the ages that tend to get most overlooked, so we would appreciate gifts for these age ranges; these could include rattles etc for the young babies and toiletries or gift vouchers for older children.
