The Trust Charity – Hillingdon Hospitals Charity

As well as providing health services from Hillingdon and Mount Vernon Hospitals, the Trust also has a separate registered Charity to support its work. The NHS has clear rules about what is centrally funded; the Charity exists to provide that bit extra where it can.

There are four key funding priorities and all the funds received by the Charity are used to satisfy at least one of these:

  • Improving the patient experience
  • Enhancing the hospitals’ environments
  • Developing staff and volunteers
  • Supporting innovation in healthcare.

In addition to taking in ‘General Funds’ that can be used anywhere, any donation can be ring-fenced for a specific ward or department if requested. We raise funds from a wide variety of sources – as well as fundraising within the hospitals, we hold or attend numerous events around the borough through the year, such as the Hillingdon Half Marathon, carers fairs, health and wellbeing days at Uxbridge Leisure Centre and many more besides.

We also have a growing range corporate relationships for which we are really grateful. Lastly we are supported by a number of generous charitable foundations and organisations for various projects.

Recent and current charity projects have included:

  • Updating ward dayrooms for patients
  • Additional ‘non-core’ equipment for Paediatrics
  • Supporting the Topaz Team with essential supplies for new mothers with complex social needs
  • Specialist gym equipment for the Cardiac Rehabilitation Unit.

The Charity is also about to launch its first major funding appeal, for a private residential suite for families and parents who have experienced a loss during their pregnancy, look out for more news soon.

The Charity is run by a director with a small team and overseen by a dedicated board committee.

How can you donate?

As you would expect there are a number of ways you can donate to us. Apart from the donation boxes all around the hospitals, you can send us a cheque (payable to Hillingdon Hospitals Charity), come in to the office outside Choices Restaurant with cash or card or alternatively visit our JustGiving page.

You may choose to show your appreciation by leaving a gift in your will. If you decide to do this it is treated in exactly the same way as any other donation – it can be restricted or not, the decision is completely up to you.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK tax payer, the Charity should be able to reclaim the tax on your donation at no cost to you. In effect this increases your donation value by 25%. Please either tick the box on JustGiving or let us know.
