New year windfall for Southampton hospital

A Hampshire hospital has started the new year with a welcome surprise, after a donation of more than £17,000 from Barratt Homes to Southampton Hospital Charity. 

The housebuilder had been fundraising for the C3 Hamwic Oncology Ward at Southampton General Hospital throughout 2017 and visited staff recently to let them know the grand total.

An incredible £17,817 was raised, through a combination of a charity golf day and contributed funding from Barratt Homes.

Caley Hockaday, Sister, said: “It was a real surprise when we heard how much had been raised, we really didn’t expect it! This amount of money can make a real difference to enhance the services the hospital provides for our patients, so we’re extremely grateful to Barratt Homes and everyone for getting involved.”

The cheque was handed over by Barratt Homes’ Richard Langton, who recently received treatment on the C3 Hamwic Oncology Ward. 

He said: “I’ve seen first hand what an incredible job all the staff do so it was an honour to hand over this donation. I know it’ll go to very good use.”
