Schools fundraising

Southampton Hospital Charity is keen to work in partnership with schools, colleges and education groups, and already works with a numbers of schools across the region.

There are many ways for schools to get involved, whether it is a sponsored event, non-school uniform day, or a Christmas present or Easter egg collection for patients staying in hospital.

Supporting Southampton Hospital Charity is a great way to focus the fundraising efforts of your school, and fundraising activities could be concentrated in a charity week or spread out across various events throughout the year. If requested, we can also talk specificially about Southampton Children's Hospital and the amazing paediatric services provided through our hospital.

Call us on 023 8120 8881 for more information.

Childhood cancer awareness month

September is childhood cancer awareness month, and Southampton Hospital Charity always gets involved and helps to promote awareness of this national campaign.
In the UK an average 1,600 children are diagnosed with cancer each year - that's 30 children every week. Imagine how many children have gone to your school, and how many of their lives have since been affected by cancer.
