Easter appeal

Thank you so much for wanting to donate eggs at Easter time

Please arrange to do this before 18th March by contacting our Charity Team on 01302 644244 or emailing dbth.charity@nhs.net.

Every year our wonderful community reach out to support us over Easter by donating chocolate eggs. Whilst we are ‘egg-stremely’ grateful for all the yummy eggs we receive, sometimes we receive too much chocolate and quite often children staying on the ward over Easter may be either too poorly to enjoy these or not able to eat the chocolate eggs so we are asking out supporters to consider helping us in a different way this Easter.

Below are some other ways you can support Doncaster & Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Charity this Easter.

Donate a virtual Easter Egg

Instead of buying a chocolate egg, you can donate the amount you will have spent on a virtual egg.

Chocolate lasts a moment, but the funds we raise will make a lasting impact. We fund projects across our hospitals which are above and beyond what is ordinarily expected by providing additional equipment, services and amenities for our patients, visitors and staff which cannot be funded by the NHS alone.

The funds raised will be used where it’s needed, when it’s needed most. It could help fund projects such as:

  • Craft activities for patients who might not be able to eat chocolate.
  • Wellbeing activities to support colleagues through challenging periods.
  • Dedicated bereavement spaces supporting families through the heartbreak of losing a loved one. 

The projects we fund are only possible with the support of our community and with your help we can continue to work hard with our Trust to fund innovative and exciting projects that really do make a difference to our patients, their families and our colleagues who care for them.

Amazon Wishlist

If you would like to donate a gift sweeter than chocolate, we have created a special Easter themed Amazon Wishlist with the help of our Play Leaders and Activity Co-ordinators across the trust.

From craft items to books and toiletries, there’s something for every age and interest! These gifts will make a real difference to our patients who are with us during the Easter period.
