You made Raise a Smile 2020 our best Christmas campaign yet!

Thank you for helping us Raise lots of Smiles Last Christmas

There are many who look forward to the Christmas period. Christmas 2020 saw many West Herts NHS staff and patients unable to spend Christmas with their loved ones.

But thanks to your donations, so far we’ve raised £18,000 in contributions and gifts, enabling us to deliver nearly 70 Christmas hampers and over 300 meals, making an incredible difference to our staff and patients at your local hospitals across Hemel Hempstead, St Albans and Watford. 

Thank you

We received donations and gifts from many local businesses. We're truly thankful - and each one Raised a Smile to someone in need of festive cheer. Thank you!
