Secret NHS Santa


Specialty Doctors and Associate Specialists (SAS doctors) in the Trust are co-ordinating a food bank collection for Christmas for local food banks in Dundonald, Newtownards, Downpatrick and Lisburn.

A food bank collection box/bags have been left at the following locations:

  • Mental Health Outpatient Centre, Ards,
  • Main entrance foyer in Ulster Hospital
  • Main entrance foyer of LVH and Downe hospitals

If any staff are in a position to make non-perishable food or toiletries donations, it would be greatly appreciated.
We are using #SecretNHSSanta and would like to encourage people to think about getting a food bank donation when they are buying ‘Secret Santa’ presents or doing this instead.

Items required are:

  • Cereal
  • Soup
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Tinned tomatoes/pasta sauce
  • Lentils, beans and pulses
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tea/coffee
  • Tinned fruit
  • Biscuits
  • UHT milk
  • Fruit juice
  • Toiletries (toothpaste, feminine hygiene products, soap etc)

Thank you for supporting this worthy cause #SecretNHSSanta
