We’d like to say a huge thank you to Mr Deshmukh, consultant at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital. How took it upon himself to build his own fundraiser, supporting the @NHSCharitiesTogether COVID-19 appeal. Mr Deshmukh managed to raise over £1,455.00 including gift aid. Absolutely incredible.
The NHS Charities Together COVID-19 appeal is incredibly important to all us NHS Charities. It means we are able to further support staff and patients through this complex time. You can support the appeal by texting your message of support £5 to the #OneMillionClaps campaign. Simply text CLAP & your message of support to 70507 to donate £5.
Singer Alex Lleo held his first fundraiser this week, raising money to support the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital after his Nan was cared for by the trust. Several weeks ago, the hospital treated Alex’s grandmother for a fractured hip. She also contracted COVID-19 following the operation and was treated in an isolation ward. On seeing the care, courage and compassion for his Nan and the ongoing need for vital equipment, Alex decided to livestream a performance to fundraise for the Trust. You can find Alex Lleo on facebook, here. We will be announcing the amount raised very soon! https://www.facebook.com/alexlleomusic/
We’d like to say a huge thank you to Sister Natalie Jackson, who continues to organise donations to the trust and distribute them to key clinical areas. We cannot thank her enough.
