Christmas Jumper Day
Our Christmas jumper day is back again, this year on the Friday 13th December and we would love for you to get involved and support us!
Why choose My WiSH Charity, I hear you ask? Well if you don’t already know who we are, we are your local charity that support West Suffolk Hospital, Newmarket Hospital and the community services they provide. Our aim is to further enhance the wonderful care you, your friends and family and our hardworking staff already receive. We look after all areas covering all ages and aspects of health including neonatal, stroke, diabetes and even your Macmillan unit. Our fundraisers are able to choose which area of the hospital they wish to support and can often even choose how the money is spent.
Not only do we fundraise for all departments we also run appeals and that’s where our Christmas Jumper Day and you come in! We want you to put on your best Christmas jumper, hat, tie, socks, anything you like and donate £1 to our WiSH Upon a Star Children’s Appeal.
Our appeal covers all aspects of paediatric care including the neonatal unit, the Rainbow children's ward, the maternity unit, day surgery, fracture clinic, paediatric asthma, paediatric diabetes, eye clinic, dermatology, the emergency department and any other outpatient clinics or ward areas who care for our young patients. It’s awful having to be in hospital at any time of the year but not being able to spend Christmas at home with your family is even more harrowing for our little patients. Every penny that gets donated will go towards ensuring every young patient has enhanced care throughout their stay in hospital.
