Christmas Star appeal

The Christmas Star appeal will shine brightly thanks to Napoleons Casinos & Restaurants


Whether people donate in memory of a loved one, in celebration of the hospital or simply in hope of a better future to come; hundreds of people have joined Weston Park Cancer Charity’s Christmas Star appeal to create a better life for those living with and beyond cancer across the region.


Members of the public are warmly invited to send a personal message, along with a Christmas donation, which will be proudly displayed in the special book of Messages and Memories at Weston Park Hospital.


Napoleons Casinos & Restaurants has partnered with Weston Park Cancer Charity to sponsor the Christmas Star Appeal which delivers much needed improvements to patient comfort and care both at Christmas time and all year round.


Chairman of The A&S Leisure Group & Weston Park Cancer Charity patron, Dave Allen, commented: “Napoleons Casinos & Restaurants are proud to continue to support Weston Park Cancer Charity and we are thrilled to be supporting the Christmas Star Appeal in 2017 for the third year running.


“We employ more than 350 staff in the Sheffield area and unfortunately it is likely that at some point, some of their families and friends may need the assistance and care of Weston Park Hospital. We believe it is important to help and reach out and give backing to the charity, which has always been one of our favourite causes.”


Tina Harrison Deputy Director at Weston Park Cancer Charity said; “We are incredibly grateful for Napoleons continued support of the Christmas Star appeal. Normally people think of Christmas as a celebration, however many people staying or working in hospital over the festive season won’t have this luxury. It can be a really difficult time of year for those living with and affected by cancer. Thanks to the generosity of Napoleons, we hope to spread much needed Christmas cheer at a time when it is needed most.”


In return for every donation the charity receives they will also send out a silver star Christmas tree decoration to hang on the donor’s  tree at home – a reminder of the part they have played this Christmas supporting the dedicated team at Weston Park Hospital.


Donations to the Christmas Star appeal can be made online or by contacting the charity office on 01142 265370.
