Blencowe Scaffolding helps bring the magic of Christmas to the wards of Basingstoke Hospital
Blencowe Scaffolding’s Christmas donation to the North Hampshire Medical Fund will enable the charity to purchase Christmas Trees which will be on display at the hospital’s annual Carol Service on Thursday 01 December, and the following day moved to be put up in the wards of Basingstoke Hospital.
The donation enables the hospital charity to bring the magic of Christmas into the hospital for those who for one reason or another have to spend time away from their loved ones at this important time of year.
The North Hampshire Medical Fund is an independent charity raising money for advanced medical equipment for Basingstoke Hospital out of its NHS budget. The money donated to this fund is spent on equipment at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital that can save lives or make treatment and recovery more certain and less painful.

Judith Charmer, Fund Manager for North Hampshire Medical Fund, ‘On behalf of the Patients, Staff and all at the North Hampshire Medical Fund, say a very big thank you to all at Blencowe Scaffolding for your generous support. The Christmas trees will be going up to the wards in Basingstoke Hospital after the service!’
