R Charity's ₤10m Appeal Reveal

THIS November, 'R Charity' celebrated a significant milestone in the journey to raising ₤10 million for the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital. A grand total of ₤6.8millon has been reached with the help of fundraisers including staff, patients, volunteers and dedicated supporters. The funds will enable the new Royal to provide services beyond the NHS promise of care to create an outstanding patient experience in a world class Hospital.

To mark this momentous achievement, a day of celebration was planned. Staff throughout the Hospital joined in by wearing purple and took part in fundraising activities. Staff, patients and visitors were entertained throughout the day with performances from 3 local school choirs, the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen staff choir and soloist Rhian Carys Jones.

R Charity's aim is to raise enough money to purchase equipment which is not currently provided as standard by the NHS. The money raised as part of the appeal will also help to provide an environment which gives the best experience for patients and families anywhere in the NHS. Some of the areas set to benefit from the ₤10m appeal include breast cancer services; the funds raised will allow the Trust to purchase a state of the art 3D mammography machine. This piece of equipment helps diagnose cancers earlier, so that patients can begin treatment earlier and ultimately increase their chance of survival.

The critical care unit in the new Hospital has the latest digital technology enabling staff to monitor and respond to patient needs. The unit provides treatment to the most critically ill patients in the Hospital, this means that loved ones visit for longer lengths of time. To ensure that those relatives are comfortable whilst visiting loved ones, the ₤10m appeal will help to provide reclining furniture improving comfort for relatives and visitors.

Overall the ₤10m appeal will enable the Trust to improve diagnostic services, digital technology and comfort for patients and relatives, not only benefitting patients now but in the future.

Lauren Davies, Interim Head of Fundraising for R Charity said:- "I am delighted to announce that we have raised a staggering ₤6.8milllion for the new Royal as part of the ₤10m appeal. What an incredible achievement! We couldn't have done it without all our supporters. Staff, patients and local people have all taken part in various activities since the appeal began. A huge thank you to our cyclists, our swimmers, our marathon runners and those businesses that come to our events and select us as their charity of the year. To help us reach the ₤10m target we want you to get involved and be part of the journey to the new Royal. Your support will enable us to provide equipment, services and diagnostic facilities which go beyond the NHS promise of care. By enhancing the services we currently provide we can ensure that our new Hospital will provide world class health care for generations to come."

R Charity still has a further ₤3million to raise to hit the target and there are lots of ways to get involved whatever your age or hobby.
