Above & Beyond work with the Royal Infirmary, the Heart Institute, the Haematology and Oncology Centre, the Royal Hospital for Children, the Eye Hospital, St Michael’s Hospital, the Dental Hospital, South Bristol Community Hospital and the Central Health Clinic.
Funds raised support the top-quality care provided at these city centre hospitals. This Christmas, the charity is taking part in National Elf Service Day to more vital funds for the NHS.
Taking part in National Elf Service Day simply involves dressing as an elf or other Christmas character and making a donation to Above & Beyond.
You can raise extra funds by holding a festive bake sale, playing games or even setting up a candy cane delivery service.
The charity are encouraging those taking part to share their photos using the hashtags #NESBristol and #NationalElfService.
“We all know how hard the staff at Bristol’s hospitals work so this is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the NHS and say thank you for the care you’ve received,” says Above & Beyond’s Jessica Lear.
“However you choose to celebrate National Elf Service, your donations will make a real difference to patient care at Bristol city centre hospitals.”
