Thornhill House Bring Festive Cheer to our Elderly Patients
Members of the wonderful care team at Thornhill House popped into Barnsley Hospital earlier this week with a huge donation of Christmas presents for patients on our elderly care wards. With a variety of wonderful items from such as toiletry sets, sweet treats and gloves/socks these items are greatly appreciated by the teams on the wards as it ensures we can ensure festive cheer for patients staying at the hospital over the Christmas period.
Fundraising Coordinator Lisa Calvert said “This is such a wonderful and thoughtful act of kindness by the staff and friends of Thornhill House. Christmas can often be a difficult and lonely time for our patients and receiving wonderful gifts such as these will help brighten their day and know that local people outside of the Hospital are sparing a thought for them at Christmas and reaching out to them with a gift.”
Manager of Thornhill House Christian said “It’s lovely to be able to support the hospital in this way at Christmas, here at Thornhill House we ensure our residents have a wonderful Christmas and we wanted to reach out to elderly patients who sadly will be spending Christmas in hospital, often with no friends and family able to visit. We are so pleased we can spread our Festive Cheer out in our local community”
