Wishes can come true for patients in Cardiff and Vale University Health Board

Samsung Electronics is working with local communities to make wishes come true this Christmas.

During this busy period, it’s easy to forget how difficult it can be for patients to be separated from loved ones. With this in mind, Samsung are teaming up with local hospitals and charities across the Nation to create and donate unique experiences, powered by technology, which bring joy during the festive period.

However, this is no ordinary donation. Samsung is giving communities the opportunity to get behind their local hospitals/ charities and the people of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan can help boost the donation of devices.

The concept is simple. Each person who visits the Cardiff Queen Street store during the festive period can make a wish for Cardiff and Vale University Health Board’s patients by dropping a token into the Wish Machine. The more tokens collected, the bigger the donation. If customers make a purchase, they can lift the magic even further with five tokens being automatically donated.

The [Cardiff & Vale Health Charity’s wish is for their patients to be granted with the Virtual Reality Experience, and every token dropped will count towards this extra-special gift.

The winning experience can include*:

  • VR Headsets with a selection of worlds to enter
  • 65-inch TV and Soundbars
  • Galaxy S9 phones
  • The ultimate game selection – preloaded

What’s more, these gifts won’t stop giving, because the technology donation will be installed as a permanent feature, meaning patients and families will get to enjoy the experience all year round.

Simone Joslyn, Head of Arts and Cardiff & Vale Health Charity said: “We’re delighted that Samsung have given Cardiff & Vale Health Charity the opportunity to be part of their Wishes Campaign.  The VR Experience would make a huge difference to our patients who are often with us for long periods of time.”

Sam Grant, Marketing Officer of Samsung Electronics UK, said:  “We’re excited to see our tech bring joy to hospitals and charities across the country and it’s even better knowing the local communities can offer their support. A simple store visit will go a long way this Christmas, and we look forward to our experiences being brought to life for patients”
