About Kings Elf Service

King’s College Hospital Charity strives to make a difference to patients and their loved ones at our hospitals by supporting developments that go above and beyond what the NHS provides. Our aim is to assist in the delivery of a better experience and better results for the people who come to us in a time of need.

We support all of the hospitals within King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. These hospitals are King’s College Hospital, Princess Royal University Hospital, Orpington Hospital, Beckenham Beacon and Queen Mary’s Hospital.

Donations from kind supporters like you enable us to make real change at our hospitals. From building a helipad, providing better environments for our most seriously ill patients, and supporting our heroic NHS staff; none of this would be possible without you.

Our King’s Elf Service campaign allows us to provide gifts for all 1,500 in-patients who are spending this Christmas in one of our hospitals. This might be patients without friends, family or even a home. This gift might be the only one they receive this Christmas. This is why we need your support.

All the gifts have been chosen for patients of all ages, from new-borns to the elderly, or items that would help a whole ward.

We have a set amount we need to raise to purchase gifts for all patients. If we raise more money that the cost of buying all the presents then the additional funds will be used at the discretion of the Charity wherever the need is greatest.
