Christmas lights bring festive joy

 Christmas lights bring festive joy and support the RHN

English house with outdoor Christmas light display

A family of one Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN) patient decided to raise spirits and share the festive joy with a spectacular Christmas light display to raise money for the RHN this December.

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, to protect patients and staff from the risk of the virus many of our patients and residents have been unable to see their relatives as much as they normally would. Joanna, the relative of a patient, decided to bring the Christmas spirit to their neighbourhood by creating a magical Christmas display outside her house, asking for donations to support the RHN.

Joanna said, “During such difficult times with COVID-19 restrictions we’ve been unable to visit our relative often, but the comfort and care they have received from the staff at the RHN has been wonderful.

“As they will be spending this Christmas in the RHN we decided to make an extravagant Christmas lights display to put a smile on people’s faces and to raise funds for a great organisation.”

The family has so far raised £1,252, which will help support the extra activities for patients that makes the RHN so special.

“We hope to have our amazing relative back with us soon but in the meantime, we want to give something back to the RHN to thank it for everything it has done and is doing for them!” said Joanna.
