We are delighted to announce that with your support we have raised a phenomenal £330,000 for our #HereForEachOther appeal.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported our appeal which was set up as an urgent response to support staff physical and emotional wellbeing through COVID-19.

From kind donations, gifts given through our Amazon Wish List, purchases of our new rainbow t-shirt and for every clap made on a Thursday evening - we are grateful to every single person for coming together to help our hospitals.

So far with your help we have been able to provide our staff with a refurbished coffee lounge which now contains comfy seating, free drinks and snacks and beautifully hand-painted walls and a wonderful rainbow window.

Staff have benefited from meals and comfort packs and we are in the process of adding ‘wobble rooms’ and ‘rest and relax areas’ so staff have an appropriate place to take some time out from the intense and stressful situation. We are also looking to create tranquil outside spaces that all staff, patients and visitors can enjoy.

Whilst we appreciate the pandemic is sadly not yet over, we need to plan ahead and think about our hospital services which will still be needed more than ever by our local community.

We would ask that any future donations and fundraising are directed to our hospital charity more generally so we can support the area in greatest need whether that be our cancer centres, children’s ward, dementia, acute services, mens health and end-of-life support to name a few.
