Our impact

Since the pandemic began in March 2020 until April 2021, we have witnessed an outpouring of love for our NHS. People from all walks of life from across Bristol have donated money and gifts worth almost £4 million to our local hospitals. This has already made a life-changing difference to our patients and staff during the most critical time for our NHS in our living memory.

The support of our incredible donors has enabled us to fund a whole host of projects across our five core areas of funding: ground-breaking research, patient and family wellbeing, staff wellbeing and training, cutting-edge equipment, and enhancing buildings and spaces.

We are incredibly grateful to every single donor who helps us in our aim to be there for every patient, every step of the way.
