GSTT Packing

The thought of staying in hospital over Christmas can be pretty grim, although the staff make it as comfortable and fun as possible.

Over at Guy's and St Thomas', not only do they aim to give patients the biggest gift of all, their life, they are also giving out Christmas Stockings.

This year, Giving World has sent over 5,000 stocking fillers to the hospital. Goodies like DVDs, hats, gloves, perfumes, cosmetics, socks, wallets, purses and handwarmers.

There will be 1,100 Christmas stockings packed and given to every single patient staying in hospital on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. The stockings are also given to every person who comes into A&E and to every mum that gives birth over those two days.

Mia Hilborn, Head of Spiritual Care at the hospital, says: "This is the second year the stockings are being given out, the initiative was such a success last year that it looks set to become an annual event. Everyone loved it - patients and staff alike.

"Such a simple thing, however the pure joy from the recipients seems to be immeasurable. Not a single solitary stocking was left behind when patients were discharged. They all left clutching their Christmas stockings, it was really touching to see."

The biggest gift of life given by all at the hospital might not have a bow on it, however the stockings certainly do, and bring a smile to all, on such a very special day.
