Christmas tree lights switch on
Once again, the York Teaching Hospital Charity (YTHC) will be lighting up the Christmas tree outside York Hospital for patients and visitors to enjoy.
For the second year running, Mulberry Court Care Home, part of Barchester Healthcare, has sponsored the Christmas tree after making a donation to the charity which is also its chosen charity of the year.
Angela Hopkins, the new General Manager at Mulberry Court in Clifton Park commented, We are delighted to support the charity again this year and help to add a little Christmas spirit at the hospital. The charity is involved with such important work in the local community and this is something which is held close to our hearts.
The YTHC supports the work of the York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to help to ensure the best quality of care is provided by funding additional facilities, equipment, research and specialist staff training for the benefit of our patients.
Lucy Lowthian, Fundraising Manager for the YTHC said, We are very excited to be lighting up our Christmas tree to add a little bit of festive cheer when people visit the hospital. Mulberry Court Care Home has kindly sponsored the tree once again and we are very grateful for their support. Each year, we hope the Christmas tree will act as a symbol to highlight the good work of the charity and all its fantastic supporters.
