The Gift of Memories

Christmas is a special time of year and even more so for our patients such as John, as time is very precious to him and the people he loves. 

The best gift we can give to John this Christmas is the gift of memories. Moments of joy, love, laughter and happiness.

Christmas at St Leonard’s in many ways resembles any family Christmas; choirs sing carols, whilst mince pies and mulled wine are enjoyed; patients make cards, gifts and even Christmas cake.

But for many families, this Christmas will be even more poignant. 

You can help Grandad attend his grandchildren’s school nativity, help patients get home for Christmas if they can or, if necessary, help a family celebrate Christmas Day early in our Family Room.

A £10 donation, or what you’d normally spend on a stocking filler, will help create these memories for patients like John and their loved ones, enabling them to enjoy the time they have together.

Will you do something wonderful this Christmas and give a Gift of Memories to a patient? Maybe you have precious memories of a loved one in the Hospice or simply want to help make a difficult time memorable for the right reasons.

Remember the best gifts we can give are not the material ones, but the memories we make with the people we love.
