We need your help – feature in our #TeamDCHS Christmas Cracker!

What a year it’s been, for all kinds of reasons! As we approach Christmas, we’d like to round off 2020 with another #TeamDCHS video featuring you and everyone who makes this organisation the wonderful place it is. The film will look back at 2020, reflect and celebrate. It’ll connect us and give us the lift we all need, bringing a bit of festive cheer to us all via our computer screens or phones. This is where you come in…

We’d like your help by sending us a short video clip of you simply saying “ Merry Christmas”, “season’s greetings”, or your own little festive twist on this time-honoured tradition or send us greetings from your faith if you don’t mark Christmas yourself. We’re specifically looking for:

  • Clinicians in their uniforms, individually or within their teams (ensuring that if there are more than one of you in the video, you are appropriately distanced and wearing a work-issued mask covering your mouth and nose. Please don’t wear any tinsel or festive headgear in a clinical area or unfortunately we won’t be able to use your video. You could ask your colleague to take a quick video of you and if you went outside masks could be removed.
  • If you’d like to don your finest Santa hat and tinsel necklace and you’d rather not wear your mask, you can film your message from home in your uniform!
  • Non-clinical colleagues working from home with or without any festive attire
  • For many of you English is not your first language, so we want to celebrate our #TeamDCHS diversity – please join in in your mother tongue
  • Staff with school aged children – if you’re happy for your child/ren to be in the shot, we would love some videos of our staff with your children all saying “Merry Christmas”
  • For this to be inclusive – please don’t feel you have to celebrate Christmas yourself in order to join in with your good wishes from your own faith perspective
  • And last but not least, why not capture your festive furry friends on camera – and send us a picture showing us how creative you can be?

Please film a short clip of yourself/your team in landscape (sideways) mode and send it through to the comms team – it’s that simple. Send your videos/photos through to Jo Stevens on Whatsapp on 07890 562596 by Monday 14 December.
