Patients, staff and visitors are invited to do their bit for Macmillan Cancer Support this Christmas by hanging a personal message on the Christmas tree at The James Cook University Hospital.
The Christmas Stars appeal invites anyone who has lost a loved one to place a message of remembrance on the Christmas tree in the atrium at James Cook.
Anyone leaving a message on the tree is asked to make a donation to the charity to help provide support for future cancer patients.
The fundraiser will bring staff, patients and relatives together with a Christmas carol service of remembrance in the atrium at James Cook on Tuesday 4 December 2012 from 7pm.
Conducted by trust chaplain, Reverend Malcolm Masterman, the evening will feature music from the Angrove Singers and will be followed by tea, coffee and mince pies and the chance to chat to Macmillan staff and volunteers and the hospital chaplains.
Reverend Malcolm Masterman, said: “The Christmas Stars appeal is the perfect way to remember a loved one over the festive period. Every donation helps to provide practical, emotional and financial support for cancer patients.”
