From delicious handmade chocolates and dazzling jewellery to festive flora and gifts – seasonal shoppers were spoilt for choice at Peterborough City Hospital’s Christmas market.

Arranged in a series of winter white marquees in the hospital’s main entrance, the stalls have provided patients, staff and visitors with an opportunity to snap up a festive treat or a unique gift – whilst helping North West Anglia Hospital’s Charity.

Stallholders at the two-week market, organised by Progress Health, donated their fees to the Hospitals’ Charity, which funds patient, staff and visitor enhancements and improvements across the North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust.

And making a special appearance were the Hospitals’ Charity mascots, as part of their festive programme of events and activities to raise awareness of the charity – which has Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood as its patron.

Over £2,000 was raised for the Hospitals’ Charity from the market, which made a return to Peterborough City Hospital following a two-year break because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Peterborough City Hospital, Rutland and Stamford Hospital and Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon are all part of North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust.
