As it gets closer to Christmas, we wanted to let you know how you can support your local hospital over the festive season.
A small donation can make a big difference
You could help make a difference to patients at Milton Keynes University Hospital this Christmas. Donating a fiver will fund a gift for a patient in hospital over the festive period. Toys and gifts are carefully chosen by our ward staff to make sure the presents are suitable for our patients.
Your Festive Fiver could buy a craft set, a box of chocolates or a nice hand cream!
You can donate a Festive Fiver here!
Take part in our virtual Santa Dash!
We have just launched our very first Santa Dash challenge and invite you to complete 10km this festive season to raise money for Milton Keynes University Hospital. This family friendly event challenges you to (virtually) race 10km across Lapland to visit Santa in his grotto. You can build up the distance between 11th November and 31st December and take part in special Christmas activities along the way. Complete the 10km however you like – you could walk, run, cycle or scoot in just one day or choose to do it throughout November and December. Once you have made it to the grotto you will receive a medal and certificate too!

Get festive on a Thursday to support us
We are so excited to be holding our eighth Christmas Jumper Day and making a difference to patients, their families and staff at MKUH. This simple and jolly fundraiser can be done with your school, workplace, or group of friends – whatever works best for you! Traditionally the event has taken place on a Friday, but this year it is swapping to a Thursday which is the new Friday, so we hear! Anything festive counts, whether that’s a jangly Christmas jumper, a pair of holly head-boppers or some snowman socks! This is a fun event but will have a serious impact – raising money to make a real difference to patients, their families and staff at the hospital. We would love as many people as possible to join us.
