WHO WE ARE
What is 'Give a Gift?
Established in 2012 'Give a Gift' is a group of local people who all have a personal connection to Southampton General Hospital. Some as long term patients, some as parents of patients and some who have experienced the great work they do through having family or friends spend time there.
We are not for profit and all of us volunteer to run our yearly event.
Every December we hold a family friendly music and festive day to support the hospital charity and also Families of Ocean Ward who are also based at the hospital.
We ask for an unwrapped gift in lieu of an entry fee all of which are taken by ourselves with Santa and his Elves to the Children in the wards on Christmas morning.
We also have a giant tombola and funds raised are split between the 2 charities also.
To date we're collected in excess of 2000 gifts and raised over £4000 for charities.
