A Santa suit and a new Christmas tree with decorations

HombaseMy wish is for the inpatient unit at Whitby to have a new Santa suit, and Christmas tree with decorations for it.  The patients are generally frail and elderly and the staff work tirelessly every day of the year to provide the best care they can for everyone. The Santa suit, tree and decorations would cheer the appearance of the ward during the festive season. Thank you very much

Large Christmas Tree for Granville Court

Christmas TreeI would like to wish for a large Christmas tree for our residents at Granville Court who have profound learning disabilities. To have a tree lit up in the garden with colourful trimmings would be amazing for them to see, feel and smell. Please help us make their xmas special.

Toys for Whitby Minor Injuries Unit

My wish is to improve the toys in the waiting area of the Whitby Minor Injuries department. The current toys have been well loved over the years by children waiting to be treated and they now need replacing with new ones.

Having toys in the waiting area helps reduce the stress of the situation of being injured or ill and it also creates a welcoming environment for children in a hospital setting.

We need toys that are easy to clean to reduce the risk of cross infection – all toys must be made of a material that allows for effective cleaning and decontamination, such as a wooden activity table. This could be cleaned easily and the parts would be well contained as parts cannot be removed.

Garden Tool Shed


The Therapeutic Garden Group at Crystal Villa in Bridlington helps service users with anxiety or low self-esteem begin their recovery through activity in the small group run by Occupational Therapy.  The group wishes for a replacement garden tool shed. Unfortunately the winter weather took its toll on the previous shed which has now been demolished.

Summerhouse and plants (Granville Court)

The residents at Granville Court in Hornsea have profound learning disabilities with complex needs. Improving the therapeutic garden area would really enhance our service. A range of sensory plants and flowers, as well as a summer house structure with extended awning and solar lighting would provide a relaxing area for the enjoyment of our clients.

Therapy/Meeting Rooms (Townend Court)

We only have a few Therapy/Assessment and meeting rooms at the old building in Townend Court. The few we have are in high demand and used by various services. Sadly this means no one really looks after them and the chairs are mismatched with a number of them broken and uncomfortable, the walls are scratched and the whole thing could really do with some love and attention.

It would be absolutely fantastic if these rooms, where service users, their families and carers come, could be made to be more inviting. Some comfortable chairs alone would make a big difference, a lick of paint would be stunning and a friendly picture on the wall would really be fantastic.

Please help us make these spaces more welcoming, functional and caring.

Family Friendly rooms

To support the safeguarding teams “Think Family” Campaign we would like to see family friendly rooms in Adult mental health units for children to visit their parent or carer. To make rooms that are comfortable and kitted out with child friendly toys and books.

Multi use outdoor space – Newbridges

We would love to provide an outdoor space for our patients to play ball games.  This would significantly improve the wellbeing of patients and decrease the number of incidents.  The space could be a tarmacked area with basketball hoops.  We would need the area to be fenced in.
