Upon a star

Look up and reflect upon a star.

Across Lincolnshire we want our Hospitals to become beacons of hope, shining bright for all to see.

We’re now in a position to launch our first ever flagship Christmas Campaign. Boston, Grantham and Lincoln Hospitals will be decorated with Christmas Stars.

There will be families, friends and members of staff who will be in Hospital over the festive time.



How to get involved

Help us to keep the Christmas spirit alive for our patients, our staff and the communities that our hospitals serve. We want to spread as much Christmas joy that we can. Get involved, get festive and raise funds for the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Charity.

This is a unique way to reach over 9,000 NHS colleagues that work on our sites. By sponsoring one of our Stars we can share your support and services with our workforce.

As a sponsor you will be joining us at an exciting time. Your support will be shared through our social media channels, internal and external communications and will be thanked throughout the process.

If you have any further questions about sponsorship please do not hesitate to get in touch with Gary Burr, gary.burr@ulh.nhs.uk







Upon a star Fundraising Pack

There are also lots of other fun ways to get involved, take a look below or in our fundraising pack for inspiration.

Christmas Jumper Day

It’s Christmastime. Dig out that festive favourite, make a donation, wear it to work and spread Christmas cheer. It doesn’t need to be a jumper either, Christmas socks, hats, shirts, ties if you’ve got it, wear it!

Wrapping Party

Not the musical type but it’s either a task you love or hate. If you’re a person that loves it. In exchange of a small fee why not offer up your services to wrap presents for others.

If you’re a group that enjoys wrapping, get together put on a Christmas movie and wrap together.

Last hour’s pay

If you know your colleagues are not going to wear a Christmas jumper or get involved with another virtual quiz, you could ask them to donate their last hour of pay for the year – This may seem like a small donation, but can actually make a big difference. Simply pop a donation over to the charity for the amount.

Christmas Decorations

Everyone loves to see a house that has gone the extra mile to spread Christmas cheer. If that’s your house, then why not take donations for your favourite charity from passers-by.

Boxing Day Dip

Beat the lethargy of Boxing Day. Before the point comes where nobody knows what day it is. Get the body going, head out to the sea and take a quick dip!

Sounding tough? Some people do this for fun! Ask for a minimum sponsorship to help pluck up the courage.

Unwanted Christmas Gifts

It’s not nice to think about but it does happen. If you get items that you’re not keen on, sell the gifts and make a donation to the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Charity.

Information on keeping fundraising fun and legal can be found in our fundraising pack. You can donate to the Christmas stars via our Just Giving page.
