Their aim for 2017 is to raise £2million to improve and enhance the facilities offered to children looked after by our hospital. Our support will make all the difference.
Our generosity will help to build brand new patients accommodation offering 60 bedrooms for families to stay in while their seriously ill child is in hospital. Also utilising the latest developments in biomedical science to provide more state of the art medical equipment, such as monitors and scanners.
Lent boxes are available for those who would like to give in this way. You may also put a donation in an envelope on the Sunday collection plate (you will find envelopes in church) or via
