COVID-19 Support Appeal Update

We would like to say a big thank you to everybody who has supported us during the last six weeks during these unprecedented times.

So far donations to our COVID-19 Support Appeal has reached £73,219.52.  This includes a grant from NHS Charities together of £35,000 which we have gratefully received.

Not only have we been overwhelmed by the monetary donations but we have also received amazing support from local businesses which has helped us to provide wellbeing packages to all staff across the hospital and our community healthcare sites.

With your continued support we hope to maintain the service we are offering to boost staff morale and provide the added extras for as long as this situation goes on.Click here for more information.

Event Information

In response to the guidance and advice about the COVID-19 Virus, the Brighter Futures Team have taken the decision to postpone all of our events until it is safe to do so.

We know this will be disappointing, but the safety of all our supporters is our priority as well as our colleagues within the NHS.

We are in the process of confirming new dates and we will contact everyone already signed up with all the information they will require about new dates in due course.
