Christmas Week 2021

Christmas Celebrations at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

It’s been a real joy to see the support given by both staff at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and the public over the last few weeks.  Coming together is something we have all missed and its been a real pleasure to see us all coming together for a great cause, especially after the last year.

It’s been Christmas week at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and we have hosted an array of activities to raise funds for our Christmas Appeal. This includes a hosting a mini-Christmas market with a performance from our ROH Staff Choir, organising our own festive dress day as well as selling Christmas cards, engaging with local businesses and agreeing sponsorship opportunities with stakeholders.

Thanks to the donations received, all staff were given chocolates to thank them for their hard work throughout the year as well as encouraged to utilise the wellbeing facilities across the site funded by the Charity this year.

‘Guess the weight of the cake’ Competition

One of the fundraising activities that took place this week was ‘Guess the weight of the cake’ whereby staff, patients and the public could get involved.  This is the lovely lady won our competition! Her name is Noel, and her birthday is on Christmas Day! Noel and her husband also very kindly added an extra donation to our charity when collecting their prize.

Supporting Patients at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

We would like to give a huge shoutout to Mondelēz International , Baylis & Harding and Swizzels for donating hundreds of gifts-in-kind for our patients this year! We have so many goodies to give out that we have decided to start giving them to inpatients from now and the plan is to continue until after the Festive period.
 
We really could not have done this without their generous donations, so please join us in sharing our thanks!
