Support our charity

Image for 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.

Join our Superhero Fun Run supporting our Children’s Appeal!

Join us this summer to help raise funds for The Dudley Group NHS Charity children’s appeal by taking part in our annual Superhero Family Fun Run and fun day on Sunday 9th June 2024! The 5km running route will take you around the lake and through the grounds of Himley Hall and Park so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery while raising money for our charity. We welcome people of all abilities, and you are free to either run or walk the route. Found out more here.

Memory Tree 

We now have a beautiful memory tree funded by The Dudley Group NHS Charity that can be found on the wall by the lifts near Russells Hall Hospital main reception.

You can dedicate a leaf in celebration, recognition, or remembrance of a loved one who has passed away by engraving their name on one. It is a place where you can take a moment to reflect and remember those we have lost.

If you would like a leaf dedicated in memory of Trust staff, who passed away whilst in service after 1st January 2018, please contact head of patient experience,​ Jill Faulkner on or extension 3200.

If you would like a leaf dedicated in memory of a patient, families or friends are able to, for a donation of £65 to the Trust Charity. Please contact the charity team on or extension 3349. If you would like to keep the leaf on the tree beyond the 12 months, you are able to, by providing an additional donation of £20 per year.
