Wonderful local hero Dickie Bird visited our Maternity Department today to mark World Prematurity Day.

Dickie officially launched Barnsley Hospital Charity’s Tiny Hearts Christmas Text appeal which aims to push the Tiny Hearts total to £500,000 by Christmas.

Staff throughout the hospital wore purple to show their support for World Prematurity Day and to donate to Tiny Hearts. Staff from our Neo-Natal team held a raffle and a bake sale.

Donations of toys and gifts this Christmas

We are always humbled by the support and generosity of our staff, their family and friends with their donation of toys and gifts at Christmas.

This year, rather than a donation of toys, Barnsley Hospital Charity are asking for donations towards their Tiny Hearts appeal to help them reach their target.

Donating through the Christmas Text appeal is quick and easy – simply text TINY17 plus your donation amount to 70700, for example “TINY17 £2”
