Patient being presented with a Christmas Hamper

Spread festive comfort & cheer by sponsoring a Christmas hamper

The Lewis Foundation is calling for companies and individuals to sponsor their surprise Christmas hampers so they can bring festive comfort and cheer to adult cancer patients.

For the seventh year in a row, The Lewis Foundation – which provides free gifts and support packs to patients in 17 hospitals across the Midlands all year round – will be hand delivering hampers as a surprise in the lead up to Christmas.

The sponsored hampers will be gifted to people in their homes and on the wards, and will be packed full of festive food treats from Waitrose.

With each hamper costing £45, The Lewis Foundation’s co-founders Lorraine and Lee Lewis are asking for one-off donations or ongoing sponsorship by 24th November.

Lorraine said: “Our Christmas hamper campaign has only ever had one main objective – to bring a smile to adult cancer patients who are going through a difficult time.

“The people that we deliver the Christmas hampers to are always really surprised and can get very emotional. A lot of patients say that they can’t afford the luxuries lots of us take for granted at Christmas, so they are always very grateful and happy to receive the gifts. They can never believe that the hampers are free, and that’s all thanks to the support from the wonderful business and individuals in our community.”

Each hamper contains items such as Christmas puddings, mince pies and Prosecco, and costs £45.
