Gifts in kind

A great way to donate a gift is to visit our Amazon Wishlists. Please find below links to all the lists from our hospital departments.

These items have been carefully selected to ensure we provide a comfortable, home-from-home for our patients and their families.

Dementia Care


We often receive donations of toys and games for our patients, particularly around the festive seasons such as Christmas or Eid, and whilst we are incredibly grateful for these, we do have some guidelines around what we can or cannot accept.

How to get your gifts to us

Post to:

The Fundraising Team Bradford Hospitals Charity
Duckworth Lane
Bradford BD9 6RJ

In person:

If you are planning to drop your gifts into the hospital in person, please contact our friendly fundraising team on 01274 274809 so that we have
advance notice of when you are coming in. Donations can be dropped to our Fundraising Office located at Daisy Bank on Duckworth Lane.   Please note the office is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.


Simple guidelines

  • Toys must be brand new
  • Toys must not be gift wrapped
  • Soft toys are not accepted on our wards and departments due to the risk of cross-infection
  • Please note, we are unable to collect your gifts from you, or cover the cost of delivering them to the hospital

We do accept knitted garments for our premature and neonatal babies, but often have a greater supply than we can use, so it is always worth making contact with the hospital first if you are planning to donate a large number of knitted items.

We also love receiving knitted twiddle-muffs – helping to support anxious patients with dementia. They are a wonderful distraction.

See below our knitting patterns:

Christmas scrubs!

Our clinical staff are scrubbing up well for Christmas and on the lookout for sewers and festive fabrics to make Christmas scrubs.

We are very grateful to Laura from Sew Different for providing her patterns free of charge for our community to make the scrubs.

You can download her designs and patterns below.

Please do check out the Sew Different website for lots of patterns and sewing news!
