17 January 2017

Fundraising

Southend Hospital Charity has recently launched their new website featuring details of their appeals, how to become a volunteer, fundraising news and upcoming events, and much more. It also enables supporters to donate securely through the website if they wish.

The two major fundraising campaigns are the Keyhole Cancer Appeal which aims to raise £600,000 for the provision of a new state-of-the-art laparoscopic (keyhole surgery) theatre suite. The other campaign is the Dementia Appeal which aims to raise funds in order to purchase dementia-friendly equipment such as memory boxes and bed sensors. The mission is to standardise dementia care and be a dementia-friendly hospital.

Kayley Fletcher, Community Fundraising Manager, said: "We hope our new website will help keep the public informed and up-to-date with our important appeals and activities as well as make the process of donating more convenient through our secure page.

"There are lots of ways people can get involved such as leaving gifts in wills and visiting charity shops, and our site contains all the information you need to help Southend Hospital reach its fundraising targets and improve patient care."
