Airedale Hospital and Community Charity launches Christmas Gift Appeal.

We are asking people to donate gifts for patients that will be in hospital at Airedale this Christmas – from babies to elderly patients.

539 distinct patients were in hospital at Airedale over the festive season last year, and over 50% of these patients were aged over 68.

Some items that would make ideal gifts are: biscuits, chocolates/sweets, colouring books, colouring pencils, notepads, pens, travel-sized toiletries, vaseline-free lip balm (e.g. Burt’s Bees), wordsearch books, toys for children.

Please bring donations to Airedale Hospital and Community Charity, location C33, Airedale General Hospital before Tuesday 21 December in a small box or gift bag, stating the age range and gender (if applicable) for the enclosed gift.

If you’d like to organise bringing your donation in, or would like any more information, please contact the charity team on or 01535 294870.

Your support would be greatly appreciated.
