ellenor Launches Kindness Advent Calendar

ellenor hospice launches their first ever digital advent calendar.

It’s our way of giving something back to our local community this year. For 25 days, this free digital calendar will offer daily special messages and pictures for you to open – all themed around kindness – and showing you how your support makes such a difference to local families under our care. A Christmas recipe from Great British Bake Off’s Laura Adlington, Waggy tails and smiles from Suzi, our Pets as Therapy dog, Christmas messages from our service teams, a delicious Christmas mocktail and so much more! It’s our way of bringing the spirit of the festive season to you.

There are 25 days to open, one window each day - the last day is Christmas Day and we hope as you open each window you will love the surprise that the window brings. We are so excited to be doing this and sharing it with you. And to help make that happen, our patron Charlotte Hawkins will open the calendar with her own special message to you.


Georgina Lestini, Head of Marketing and Communications said: “This Christmas we wanted to do something different and, thanks to the help of our wonderful ellenor team and local community, we hope we have captured some great thanks yous, recipes and warm family messages. We are your local hospice, and we thank you.

“Our patients and families are at the heart of what we do. We hope our Kindness Virtual Advent Calendar will lift your spirits and offer you a heart-warming insight into how your support is helping local people and their families make the most of the time they have together.

“From everyone at ellenor we would like to wish you a happy and peaceful New Year.”
