Young UK Scientologists Share the Joy of the Season with Children Spending the Holidays in Hospital

Volunteer Ministers brought holiday cheer to kids at a local children’s hospital

When young Scientologists learned that kids at a nearby children’s hospital would be spending the holidays away from their brothers and sisters, moms and dads, they wanted to help make the holiday as special for them as they could. 

Deciding to apply the motto of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers—Something can be done about it—they helped collect donations and wrapped hundreds of Christmas presents for the children to let them know how special they are to other kids.

With the help of the Saint Hill chapter of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers, the children wrapped presents and set off for the hospital where they asked the nurses to hand them out to children having to spend Christmas away from home. 

Saint Hill is home to the Scientology Advanced Organization of the UK and is UK headquarters for the Scientology religion. It is also home to Saint Hill Manor, one of the most historically significant estates in the region. Saint Hill was the home of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard during one of the most pivotal eras of the religion. Scientologists from around the world travel to the UK for Scientology training and spiritual counseling at the very place where so much of the technology was developed. 

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers are a religious social service developed by Mr. Hubbard in the mid-1970s. It constitutes one of the world’s largest international independent relief forces.

Both documentaries air on the Scientology Network, available on DIRECTV Channel 320, DIRECTV STREAM, AT&T U-verse and at, on mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.

The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
