Support our charity

Our charity is not about providing healthcare, charitable donations we receive enable us to provide comfort and facilities above and beyond those provided by the NHS. Enhancing a person’s visit to us can make all the difference to their well-being, improving both their recovery and overall experience.

We want you to be confident that your donation will go where you want it to go.

The Dudley Group NHS Charity is an umbrella charity which looks after the charitable funds of all the wards and departments.  Our Registered Charity Number is 1056979.  Once your donation goes into the main charity account it will be directed immediately to your designated ward or department charity fund.  They get regular notifications of donations and the funds are spent by matrons and senior members of staff on the unit.  They are extremely grateful for charity donations and will always endeavor to spend them wisely.

FORTHCOMING EVENTS

Celebrate NHS70 and fundraise for your local hospital

The NHS turns 70 on 5 July. It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions and to thank the extraordinary NHS staff – the everyday heroes – who are always there to greet, advise, and care for us.

We would love to see the local community joining in the celebrations and doing some fundraising for our hospital.  This is a great way to say thank you to the countless doctors, nurses, midwives, pharmacists, paramedics, scientists, porters, cleanliness technicians and other NHS staff who have looked after us for the last 70 years.

Some ideas as to how you could get involved:

  • Have an office dress down day
  • Host a Big 7Tea Party
  • Hold a tombola
  • Jump out of a plane
  • Arrange a Quiz Night
  • Organise a sponsored walk

Anyone who would like to get involved in the celebrations can contact us on dgft.communications@nhs.net

 

Celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS with a Big 7Tea party

Join the celebrations by holding a Charity Big 7Tea Party. It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate one of the nation’s most loved institutions, and what better way to celebrate than with a cup of tea?  If you wish you can add to you fundraising with a tombola, dress down day or a quiz.

Although Thursday 5th July is the actual 70th Birthday of the NHS, you can hold your Big 7Tea on a date that works best for you and your guests.  Download your Big 7Tea pack which contains bundles of stuff to help you organise your event.
