Twenty years of Southampton Hospital Charity
Southampton Hospital Charity officially started on 10 November 1995, and successfully re-launched in March 2008. Since then it has gone from strength to strength and now raises over £2.2 million a year.
Richard Corden, Director, comments: “It is incredible to think that Southampton Hospital Charity has been going for twenty years. Since the re-launch, we have raised £16,038,000 for the benefit of the Hospital’s patients.
Monies can be donated to the following areas within the hospital:
- Women and newborn
- Child health
- Cardiovascular and thoracic
- Cancer care
- Critical care
- Emergency medicine
- Medicine for older people
- Specialist medicine/ophthalmology
- Support services
- Trauma and orthopaedics
Donors can also choose specific wards, departments or projects.
A list of some of our current fundraising projects can be found on our website: http://www.southamptonhospitalcharity.org/index.php?id=40
Southampton Hospital Charity’s money is raised, held and accounted for independently from the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust’s NHS funds. It is spent exclusively for charitable purposes to improve the health and wellbeing of the NHS patients at Southampton General Hospital and Princess Anne Hospital.
We want to thank everyone who has donated money to the charity, or those who have included us in their wills as a legacy.
