This Christmas we will be raising funds for small projects that make a big difference

Throughout December all donations made to rb&hArts, the hospitals' arts team, will be doubled. We have an ambitious target to raise £50,000, which will then be matched to £100,000, to fund art and music projects that will help make a difference to the wellbeing of patients.

Wellbeing is central to the rb&hArts programme that supports patients, staff and the wider community. The benefits of the creative programme are that it can:

  • Reduce isolation and loneliness
  • Increase opportunities for skills development, boosting confidence and resilience
  • Encourage and develop social interaction, creating a nurturing community spirit for patients, their families, and for staff.

The Charity would like to thank some very generous donors who have agreed to double any donations made to rb&hArts in December, up to the value of £50,000. It’s essential that we raise £50,000 (doubled to £100,000) to help make hospital life a little more fun and interactive for patients.

We will have more updates for you soon, so keep an eye on your inbox and our social media feeds for ways that you can help fundraise. Donations will need to be made to the Doubling December appeal for them to be doubled.

Thank you for everything you give. It makes a huge difference to patients.
