Our 10th Anniversary Appeal
Ten years ago the doors opened to a hospital that now holds a special place in the hearts of thousands of families across Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties.
Designed with the needs of children and their families in mind, the Oxford Children’s Hospital was made possible thanks to a huge campaign that raised close to £15 million to help fund this wonderful local facility.
To mark this anniversary we are launching a new £2 million fundraising appeal – to make the hospital and children’s services across our NHS Trust even better for our young patients and their families. All the funds raised will benefit the Oxford Children’s Hospital and children’s care across Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, including the Horton General Hospital in Banbury and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre.
We are delighted to have a personal statement of support from HRH the Duchess of Cambridge.
We hope you will join the party!
We are marking the success of ten years of the Children’s Hospital by raising £2 million for some really exciting projects in 2017, including:
We are proud to be working with Ronald McDonald House to help build brand new parents’ accommodation, offering 60 beds for families to stay in while their seriously ill child is in hospital. Currently we simply don’t have enough space for all the parents who need to stay close to their children, so this will make a huge difference to thousands of families every year.
Places to Play
We are funding more outside play areas, toys and games to help keep our young patients happy in hospital. Play is hugely important as it helps to distract children when having painful procedures, and keep them happy whilst recovering or waiting for surgery or appointments.
Utilising the latest developments in biomedical science to provide additional state-of-the-art medical equipment, such as dedicated bedside monitors and a specialist microbiology scanner for quicker diagnosis of bacterial meningitis and respiratory infections.
We hope we can count on your support!
