Spreading Christmas Smiles 2020

In this unprecedented year of COVID, with our BSUH NHS teams working tirelessly, we are launching our 2020 Spread Christmas Smiles Campaign and we need your help to raise £5000.

We want to bring Christmas to patients and staff who will be in our four hospitals on 25th December. Every patient will receive a mince pie, and all of our dedicated NHS staff, either a free lunch or a treat.

Please help us deliver a much-needed boost to spirits. Get into the festive mood and invite your friends, family and colleagues to join you throughout December to have some socially distanced fun and make a difference for BSUH patients and staff.

Christmas Jumper Day 2019

Christmas Jumper Day: 18 December

Get ready to strut your stuff in your festive finery, which includes socks and accessories! Invite colleagues, friends or family to join the fun.

Take a photo of an online meeting, pose for a socially distanced picture, or create a “working from home” Christmas jumper collage. Tag us on social media @bsuhcharity.

We recommend a minimum donation of £2 from everyone taking part, and we’ve made it easy to give. Text GIVEASMILE 2 to 70085 to donate £2 (change 2 to 5 or 10 to give even more!).

There are so many ways you can get involved to help Spread Christmas Smiles across the Princess Royal Hospital, Alexandra Children’s Hospital, Royal Sussex County Hospital, and Sussex Eye Hospital. We can’t wait to hear some of your ideas for festive fundraising, and we appreciate all of your support.
