Let's double the magic this Christmas for Leeds Teaching Hospitals

Let's double the magic this Christmas for Leeds Teaching Hospitals

Christmas is fast approaching, and this year Leeds Cares are focused on making it as special for those in hospital as possible.

The pandemic means visitor restrictions continue to be in place across the hospitals, which has created problems of loneliness and heightened anxiety. In-patients will not be able to see their loved ones and children who are shielding won’t be able to share Christmas with their siblings.

Could you become a #smallbusinessstar by donating a small % of your sales on a product or service between 1st – 31st December when the lovely team at www.workforgood.co.uk will match fund your donation* - what a brilliant Christmas present for Leeds Cares!

It’s really easy to get involved, simply visit the ‘Work For Good’ website to create your free account  and start raising funds for Leeds Cares.

Hanif Malik, Park Lane Foundation "It is essential we keep the good will going, and I would say to any business considering supporting Leeds Cares it is absolutely worth it!".

Lindsay Drawmer, Rather Lather "It was so simple to set up! I would recommend any Leeds businesses wanting to donate to their hospitals to join this campaign.”.

You've stayed at home for the NHS, you've clapped for the NHS. Now “Thankful Thursdays” gives your business the chance to do something wonderful for our hospitals.

Join other businesses in Leeds by donating a % of your sales on any Thursday in 2020 to help us raise much needed funds. Your donations will support the hospitals to continue delivering excellent care throughout the crisis whilst also preparing to open up normal service again. "Thankful Thursdays" will run every week to end of December 2020, and by combining the efforts of many smaller businesses we believe great things can be achieved.

Betty's show support through 'Tea-riffic' hats

Betty's show support through 'Tea-riffic' hats

Through our partnership with Betty's of Harrogate, Yorkshire Tea went the extra mile just before Christmas to support our hospitals. They had a stock of bright orange hats left over from the UCI Road World Championships and they knew these would be hugely appealing to Yorkshire Tea fans everywhere!

They decided to give all the profits of every remaining 'Yorkshire Tea' special edition bobble hat sold, directly to Leeds Cares. The amazing hats sold out in record time and raised a whopping £6,923 in the process. The generous gift went straight to supporting staff, patients and families across our hospitals.
