Dudley Group NHS Charity Events
We have many events and campaigns running throughout the year. It’s never been easier, or more fun, to support our charity and we have prepared a host of events to suit everyone!
By attending our events or taking part in our campaigns you will be helping to make the lives of our patients more comfortable. Enhancing a person’s visit to us can make all the difference to their well-being, improving recovery and overall experience.
Christmas Jumper Day
Wear your Christmas jumper and together we can make a difference for our younger patients who visit our hospital this Christmas.
Raising funds for the Children’s Appeal
Hospitals can be a scary place, especially for children. Our charity endeavours to ease the experience of the children in our hospital, and their families, by providing a comfortable, reassuring base for their care and treatment.
Some of the areas that will benefit from your support:
- The Children’s Ward
- Children’s Outpatients
- Outdoor play spaces
- Neonatal Unit
- Paediatrics Emergency Department
- Pre-operation and recovery
No matter how much a child is prepared for their visit, it will still seem alien and unknown. They may be worried about pain, or even if they are going to like the food. A change of routine and meeting new people can be extremely unsettling. Helping a child to adjust and to feel safe is vital to their well-being and recovery.
There is a suggested donation of £2 being asked.
The charity has a supply of round lapel badges that can be sold to staff with uniform restrictions for £2 which will count as their donation for Jumper Day.
You can either donate in cash to our general office (located behind main reception or donate to our Just Giving page here.
Tree of Light
Christmas is a time for celebration and contemplation and as we approach this special time of year, we know it is so important to hold the memories of someone special close to our hearts.
We would like to invite you to take a moment of reflection, to hope for a brighter future for those who are going through difficult times, and to remember those who are no longer with us.
Join us as we celebrate the lives of loved ones, by dedicating a light on our Virtual Christmas tree here.
To light up a life, simply pick a light on the tree, make a donation, and then write your personal dedication to remember a loved one, you can also add a photo. For an increased donation you can also a star at the top of the tree.
Your light will shine brightly throughout the festive period, representing your loved ones brought to your life.
By making a donation to The Dudley Group NHS Charity, you will help us enhance the experience for our patients, their families, and the NHS heroes from our Trust caring for them this Christmas and beyond.
Glitter Ball 2022
The Glitter ball is our NHS celebration and local business networking event which we ran for the first-time last year. It was a huge success and raised more than £10,000 from the sponsorship, table packages, raffle, and auction. This year the event will take place at The Copthorne Hotel in Brierley Hill on the 24th November 2022 and the money raised will go towards our Thank You Appeal. The appeal will help support our NHS heroes and make a real difference to all who use our services, offering them the best experience possible. You have the option of taking one of our key sponsorship packages or purchasing a full or half a table at the event or even an individual ticket – for more information please see our brochure.
