University Hospitals Birmingham Charity is raising funds to help to bring some Christmas magic to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Heartlands Hospital, Good Hope Hospital and Solihull Hospital this year, and they need your help!

Along with the Birmingham Updates team, the Charity will be at New Street Station on Thursday 12 December at 12:30pm to celebrate this year’s Festive Jumper Day with the biggest Festive Jumper flashmob in the West Midlands!

If you’re going to be in Birmingham City Centre on 12 December, whether you’re doing shopping or you work nearby, then come along to the departure boards at Birmingham New Street at 12:30pm to be in a festive photo like no other.

There’s only one rule – you must be wearing something festive!

Get your friends and colleagues together and come along and help us to raise awareness and funds for the Charity’s Christmas appeal.

If you’re not around on 12 December, you can always help to bring some Christmas magic to the hospitals by buying a ‘Virtual Gift’ for a patient at the hospital. Visit to find out more and help to bring smiles to patients this Christmas.
