Help us spread some Christmas cheer to staff at Colchester Hospital!

For the last three years, we have delivered Christmas planted containers to individuals local to Perrywood Tiptree (and nominated by our customers) who, for one reason or another, deserve some Christmas cheer.

This year, we have teamed up with Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity to give Christmas planted containers to NHS members of staff at Colchester General Hospital who have gone above or beyond their duty of care and who have really made a difference to patients’ lives. Twenty members of staff will be presented with their planted gift on Wednesday 12th December.

How you can help – please send entries via email or post

If you are visiting Colchester Hospital in the next few weeks and would like to nominate a member of NHS staff at the hospital, please look out for posters and voting forms on the notice boards around the hospital.
