Christmas at East Cheshire NHS Charity

This Christmas we’re asking our local community to help us spread some festive cheer by making a donation to East Cheshire NHS Charity Priority Appeal. You could donate the cost of a present, fundraise at work, compete to see who has the best festive knit with our Christmas Jumper Day event or donate in lieu of Christmas cards…the opportunities are endless!

This Christmas instead of donating physical gifts such as toys and chocolates to our patients and staff, please consider making a virtual donation. You can choose to support any of our hospitals, wards or departments.

Show your support for the patients and staff at East Cheshire NHS this Christmas by making a donation today
