Help your local hospital charity go above and beyond this Christmas

This winter is going to be one of the hardest yet for the NHS and now more than ever we need your help. With your support, we can make the festive season that little bit easier for patients and their families who need our care, whilst helping us to support and recognise the amazing staff who will be caring for them.

Your support can still help us brighten up even the darkest days, helping us ensure that no patient or staff member misses out on any of the joy and wonder of the festive season. We rely solely on your donations to be able to do this.

Whether you take part in our festive sock day, dedicate a star in memory of your loved one, or host a festive party with your family or colleagues, you can make a huge impact for patients, staff, and the communities of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals.
