Fundraising

With your help we can fund the extras to improve your healthcare facilities above and beyond the NHS, to make the hospital experience the best it can be for all who visit and stay there. 

We can provide a range of equipment, such as the Specto Ultrasound System at £45k which will help many patients or the voice amplifier at £64, which will improve the quality of life for an individual patient.

Our overheads are minimal as we have no staff.

Your help in fundraising activities is critical.  You can donate through the “donate” button or set up a fundraising inititiative to support our work.

Here are some examples of how we have raised funds.
