Together, We CARE. Thanks to you, we are playing a key role in enhancing the wellbeing of, and support for, NHS staff, patients and volunteers, particularly those who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our goal at Hampshire Hospitals Charity is to raise at least £1million a year to ensure that we can provide increased care and support for our local HHFT NHS heroes and the patients they care for, above and beyond what the NHS can afford to deliver. This includes providing better outdoor and rest spaces, equipment, and enhancing the environment and experience for everyone in our hospitals.

We know our staff are the experts on what they, their patients and loved ones need and deserve, so we let them have a big say on how their own ward and department funds are spent, subject to the approval of Hampshire Hospitals Charity fund managers, trustees, and in keeping with Charity Commission guidelines.

If you want to know more about the charity, the funds that exist, or how to donate, please contact Hampshire Hospitals Charity directly on 01962 828353 or                            e-mail hh.charity@hhft.nhs.uk.

And if you wish to donate and support your local HHFT NHS hospital heroes, you can make a BACS payment or download a donation form and return it with your cheque, made payable to “Hampshire Hospitals Charity (4999)”. These donations will go into a general fund (4999) that can be accessed by all staff across our HHFT hospitals in Basingstoke, Winchester and Andover.

If you wish to donate to a specific ward or department, please email hh.charity@hhft.nhs.uk and we will be able to help you.

We are currently updating our HHC website so you can see exactly how your money has been, and is being, spent in the last few years. Thank you for your kind and generous support past, present and future.

Your wonderful donations really do make a difference to the support and care that HHC provides and the people who we help. Together, We CARE!
