Help your Hospital appeal launched by Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust
A ‘Help your hospital’ appeal has been launched by Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust.
Designed to aid Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie hospitals and their staff during the coronavirus crisis, the appeal highlights how while many of us are working from home and maintain ‘social distancing’, NHS staff still have to be there for us all.
The hospitals cannot accept physical donations or gifts, but financial donations can be made online or text under the new campaign, and Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust will then direct the funds to where they are needed.
One Addenbrooke’s and Rosie supporter, Helen Mason, said: “I just want to say thank you to all the amazing NHS staff who are on the frontline right now. We will owe you for everything you do and sacrifice for our care.”
Shelly Thake, Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust CEO, said: “It’s truly incredible how many people want to support our fantastic NHS staff and I want to thank their kindness in advance. With their support we can help the hospital and its patients through these uncertain times.”
To donate, visit helpyourhospital.co.uk or text NHSHEROES 5 to 70085
to donate £5, or text NHSHEROES 10 to 70085 to donate £10.
Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust’s purpose is help the hospitals improve patient care, get the treatment they need in environments that support health and to recover more quickly or get the support that they need over and above what would be possible through NHS funding alone.
