Christmas Care Packs

Every Christmas our local community love to donate presents to patients across the local hospital and health service. Most people think of children in hospital, but did you know that each year more than 400 local adults spend Christmas in hospital?

This Christmas please consider donating an item to Wishlist Care Packs to benefit a patient in care of all ages and abilities.

How to donate Items

If you have an item or a pre-packed hamper that you would like to donate to brighten Christmas Day for a local patient, please phone 07 5202 1777 or email

*Please keep in mind that second-hand toys and goods can't be accepted due to the strict health guidelines of the SCHHS hospital facilities. We also ask that items and hampers are not gift wrapped.

Why can't I wrap the gift?

We want to ensure that your gift is directed to the most appropriate patient (taking into account their age group, ability and current health conditions).
