Away from the specialist units and wards, busy A&E sees patients brought in with acute situations. They are often then admitted to wards and may have inappropriate or no change of clothing. They may even have been in an accident so the clothes are soiled or no longer wearable.

Not only does Guy's & St Thomas' serve South London, it is also a national and international centre, and on average less than 50% of patients are from the local areas. So there is a huge and varied need. There are almost as many reasons for people needing new clothes as there are people who need them.

To meet the need, the hospital accesses thousands of pounds worth of new clothing from Giving World, given out by the Social Services team.

Guy's has a policy that nobody should leave hospital without being properly clothed, especially at this time of year when there is a high need for warm clothing.

Mia Hilborn, Head of Spiritual Care at the Hospital, has been thrilled at the opportunities available for the Trust to access free donations, particularly clothing, books and toys.

She said: "I heard about Giving World last year, and since then have been tapping into their free service to receive new goods donated by companies. Over the last few months our Social Services Team has received over 2,500 items of ladies and men's clothing. It's given to patients whose clothing maybe soiled, weather-inappropriate, or even destroyed by an accident. We've also received about 2,000 new books which will be enjoyed by patients, visitors and staff."

For us at Giving World, it's wonderful to reflect on all of the people who have benefited and who have donated their time and goods to enable what we do.

Thank you...
