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.

How you can get involved

5k Superhero Fun Run!

Join us this Autumn on 2nd October at 11am to celebrate all the hard work of our superhero colleagues across The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust by taking part in our 5k Superhero Fun Run!​ Everyone who takes part on this day will also be running alongside our Team Dudley Virtual Marathon runners who will be joining us at the start line! The location of the run is at Himley Hall & Park where the route will take you through the grounds so that you can enjoy the beautiful scenery while raising money for our Trust’s charity.

All proceeds from the event will go to our Thank You Appeal which supports the physical and emotional wellbeing of our staff and patients following the difficult few years we have faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic however, if you would instead like to raise money for ward or department of your choice you are more than welcome to do so. We welcome people of all abilities to join us as you are free to either run or walk the event. This event is open to the public and staff. We kindly ask that all participants try and raise a minimum suggested sponsorship amount of £20. If you would like more information regarding the event, please get in touch at dgft.fundraising@nhs.net​

Thank you so much for all your support and we hope to see some amazing superhero costumes on 2nd October!
