Our Fundraising Groups are a collection of family, friends or people from the same community who come together to raise money and awareness for our hospital services. 

We are always keen to hear from people who are interested in setting up their own group and would like to advice about how to do this. Our Community Fundraiser Maya Richardson can give you lots of advice, support and fundraising materials so you have everything you need to set up your group. 


Tel: 01723 236210
