Wear your festive accessory to support Southampton Hospital Charity!

On Friday the 13th December 2019 we are asking hospital staff, patients, local schools, colleges and businesses to take part in our Festive Day to raise funds for our National Elf Service!.

Festive headwear

Why not wear your festive jumper, novelty tie, glittery socks, flashing earrings, antlers or hat on the day and donate just £1. (More ideas on what to wear in the PDF at the bottom of the page).

If this day doesn’t work for your school or business – don’t worry. You can take part whenever suits you best.

Register your interest below and we will post out a FREE fundraising pack with some helpful hints and materials.

And most importantly, don’t forget to show us your festive spirit on the day by sharing your photos!

Nurses in festive dressHow to maximise fundraising on the day:

Your ward, school or business might want to go a little further by:

  • Playing some festive games.
  • Organising a Christmas Quiz.
  • Having a cake sale (ideas in PDF at bottom of the page).
  • Sponsoring your boss or head teacher to wear something festive (and silly) for the day.

Whatever you do, you can send us your pictures and we will share them on social media.   

We are also looking for choirs and musical groups to perform in the main entrance of the hospital this December to bring even more festive cheer to our patients and staff. If your group would be interested in taking part, please do let us know by emailing
