Many people choose to give to charity instead of sending Christmas cards. We know work teams, groups and clubs will want to exchange Christmas greetings, so we have got some lovely festive posters for you to display in your office or meeting place. Rather than sending cards, you can all write your Christmas messages on the poster and put a donation in the collection box! If you would like a poster and/or collection box please let us know and we can send one out to you.
Tree of Celebration
Do you have something to celebrate? Perhaps you’ve just finished your treatment, or even been given the all-clear? Or perhaps you want to celebrate the life of a friend or family member. We will be filling our Tree of Celebration this Christmas with bright yellow sunflowers, to celebrate with you!
The tree will be in the reception area of the Lingen Davies Cancer Centre, and we’re giving you the chance to adopt a sunflower, while supporting us to make a positive difference to lives affected by cancer in our community.
How it works
Tell us who you are celebrating by – this can be anyone, including yourself! We’ll add the name to one of the sunflowers hanging on the tree and these will stay on display until Christmas. You can tell us who you’re celebrating here or, celebrate someone and purchase a decoration for your home here (gold sunflower, yellow sunflower)
Christmas Jumper Day
On Friday 7th December, why not join us for the Lingen Davies Christmas Jumper Day?
