Support our charity

Our charity is not about providing healthcare, charitable donations we receive enable us to provide comfort and facilities above and beyond those provided by the NHS. Enhancing a person’s visit to us can make all the difference to their well-being, improving both their recovery and overall experience.

We want you to be confident that your donation will go where you want it to go.

The Dudley Group NHS Charity is an umbrella charity which looks after the charitable funds of all the wards and departments.  Our Registered Charity Number is 1056979.  Once your donation goes into the main charity account it will be directed immediately to your designated ward or department charity fund.  They get regular notifications of donations and the funds are spent by matrons and senior members of staff on the unit.  They are extremely grateful for charity donations and will always endeavour to spend them wisely.

Glitter Ball – Friday 5 November 2021

Our charity has decided to host a post-Covid celebration event to be held on Friday 5 November 2021 at the Copthorne Hotel, Merry Hill, Dudley. The Glitter Ball will bring together local businesses across the Black Country to show support for our Charity and network with other like-minded Black Country businesses.

Business leaders will have the opportunity to hear from the trust chief executive Diane Wake, key consultants and front-line staff who have all worked throughout the pandemic.

Guests will be treated to a wonderful evening of entertainment including welcome drinks and a two-course meal.

The funds raised from this charity event will go towards the Better Brighter Future Appeal. The appeal will help support our NHS heroes and make a positive difference to all who use our hospital’s services, offering them the best experience possible.  Email: dgft.fundraising@nhs.net for details.
