Can you take the heat and fundraise for West Hertfordshire hospitals? 🔥
We are delighted to launch our first ever Firewalk, taking place on 21 October 2022, so if you are looking for an exciting fundraising challenge with a sprinkling of heat, this is the event for you!
Imagine being able to perform more numerous and complex pinhole surgeries that will save more lives in our local community. That is the vision for this appeal, which aims to raise £695,000 so we can purchase a new super scanner for a new Interventional Radiology suite being created at Watford General, due to open in Autumn 2022.
Over 4,350 babies are born at Watford General each year. Of these, around 10% are born prematurely.
Vital charitable support helps ensure that these vulnerable babies get the best start in life. The skills and care of the staff are supplemented by the latest equipment and extra comforts which mean that babies and their parents receive a level of care over and above what the NHS alone can afford.
It’s hard to imagine what our NHS teams are going through as they continue to care for large numbers of patients affected by COVID-19.
The last two years have been incredibly tough, yet staff continue to do their jobs with kindness and compassion. But recent research shows that over 55% nationally have experienced a mental health toll from the pandemic, with many staff reporting depression, anxiety or even post traumatic stress.
What legacy will you leave? A gift in your will has the power to change so many people’s lives.
A gift left to Raise in your will, whatever the size, will mean that generations to come can receive the best treatment, delivered by the best staff, with the best facilities and the most up-to-date equipment.
Now more than ever the NHS needs us to stand by them as they face huge emotional and physical demands, every day. That’s why we’re joining NHS Charities Together in adding a blue heart emoji in our social profiles, to raise awareness of the pressures NHS staff still face.
Post your own heart to show you care and tag #WithAllOurHearts 💙
