We have re-launched the charitable fund this week.
The Trust’s charity has been renamed ‘North Tees and Hartlepool Together’ and the launch gave staff and visitors the opportunity to understand more about the charity, how they can get involved and fundraise, and what is purchased with the money raised.
Opening the event, Chairman Paul Garvin explained: “The new name of “North Tees and Hartlepool Together’ reflects the fact that our successes really are down to our partnerships – we appreciate and are so grateful for the generosity of our local community, patients, staff, relatives and friends of the trust who put their time, energy and heart into fundraising for us.
“We use our charitable fund donations to enhance aspects of patient care and staff development which are not funded by the NHS. Your donations are invested in equipment and anything else that will make our patients’ experience more comfortable.”
“Every day we hear from people who want to make a donation to our trust, who have been inspired by the care they, a relative or a friend have received from our staff. This generosity means we can deliver even more quality care to those who need it most.”
A book stall was held as part of the launch, which will become a monthly event for North Tees and Hartlepool Together’ at the hospitals. This year we are also running the first hospital Christmas Fairs to raise funds for the charity at North Tees Hospital on 6 December and at Hartlepool Hospital on 15 December.
Paul Garvin closed the event by thanking everyone who has donated time and money to North Tees & Hartlepool Together.
