Christmas for most of us is a happy time of year but for some it can be lonely, especially if you’re elderly and in hospital with no gifts to unwrap. With this in mind the Northamptonshire Health Charitable Fund, which aims to enhance patient experience beyond what the NHS can fund, is once again calling on the people of the county to help make someone’s Christmas. The Christmas Gift appeal aims to make sure that every in-patient at Northampton General Hospital, and the community hospitals in Northamptonshire, receives a present on December 25. Last year, the charity was able to offer every patient in hospital a gift bag containing items from puzzle books to socks helping to make a huge difference to their experience of being an in-patient on the day.
