Bright Northumbria is a registered charity and donations make it possible for us to support a number of projects which can make a huge difference to our patients.
Since the charity was formed in 1998 we have been able to use the money for a wide variety of schemes and equipment. For example, providing new diagnostic equipment to fast track results for cancer patients, sleep alarm monitors for the special care baby unit at Wansbeck General Hospital, providing non-slip slippers for elderly patients at risk of falling and the introduction of the Wansbeck Oasis, a restful area for relatives of patients who are at the end of their life.
We’re always overwhelmed by the generosity of our local communities in supporting our charity. Without your donations we would not be able to trial innovative new equipment, improve the patient environment through the healing arts programme or provide the little extras that can make a real difference to our patients.
We realise how important it is to make every penny count and the charity works hard to make sure that your donations are used wisely. You can be assured that the contributions we receive are used to support the work of our services in our hospitals and the community to deliver the very best of care for our patients.
There are lots of different ways you can contribute, either through a simple donation, organising a fundraising event, donating in memory of a loved one or leaving a legacy.
