ACT launches ‘Help your hospital’ appeal

Please help raise funds to support Addenbrooke’s hospital and its staff during the coronavirus crisis

Cambridge’s Addenbrooke’s and Rosie maternity hospitals are under increased pressure during the current crisis. The hospital cannot and will not stop caring for people and its staff are going above and beyond to make sure that this care continues.

We are all being asked to keep indoors, or work from home, or maintain ‘social distance’ from our friends and family but our amazing NHS staff can’t. They have to be there for us all.

Helen Mason, an Addenbrooke’s and Rosie supporter said: “I just want to say thank you to all the amazing NHS staff who are on the frontline right now. We will owe you for everything you do and sacrifice for our care.”

Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust is asking for your help to support the hospital and it’s amazing people. Unfortunately, due to restrictions the hospital cannot accept physical donations or gifts.Instead, the staff are encouraging people to donate money so that the hospital can best decide where the help goes.

Shelly Thake, Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust CEO, said: “It’s truly incredible how many people want to support our fantastic NHS staff and I want to thank their kindness in advance. With their support we can help the hospital and its patients through these uncertain times.”

To donate and make Addenbrooke’s even better for us all please visit helpyourhospital.co.uk or text NHSHEROES 5 to 70085 to donate £5, or text NHSHEROES 10 to 70085 to donate £10.
