The Sun on Sunday Santa Hospice Appeal

News and comment

It may be gloomy weather outside, but The Sun is definitely shining for children and families supported by seven UK hospices today, as a brand new appeal launches from The Sun on Sunday.

We are delighted to partner with The Sun on Sunday for their ‘Santa Hospice Appeal’ to create special memories at Christmas time for some of the UK’s 49,000 children and young people with life-shortening conditions.

The appeal kicks off this Sunday, with The Sun on Sunday showcasing a recent visit from Coronation Street Star, Tina O’Brien, to one of the benefitting children’s hospices – Derian House.

The Sun on Sunday is calling on its readers to make a donation to buy Christmas presents for children in seven hospices throughout the UK to help make precious memories for children and families.

Christmas is a time for giving. Together for Short Lives is thrilled to partner with the Sun on Sunday so readers can have the chance to give some of the 49,000 children and young people with life-shortening conditions an extra special Christmas present this year. Many of the children we work with will have short lives, every moment is precious. We want to support them to have the best quality of care be it in a hospice or in the home through social care. “Working with the Sun on Sunday will make this Christmas even more special and help us reach more families that will benefit from our support
