There are many ways in which you can fundraise for us. You can organise your own fundraising event such as a cake bake or dress up or down day at work. Many individuals, companies, schools and groups already give up their time, creativity and talent to help support our Hospitals. If you are planning an event or need some advice do let us know by contacting the Charity Fundraising Office. 

Once you have registered for any of our events you can create a personalised JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving sponsorship page, or if you would prefer you can download a sponsorship form, and start raising money for the Hospitals Charity.
