How can I support the charity over this period?2020-03-24T11:34:47+00:00

Thank you, we appreciate that so much! You can support us online with a one off donation or a regular donation. If you would prefer to call us, you can contact our team on 01332 785731

We do still have some of our Fundraising Team in the office, so we can still accept postal donations to our office at:

Derby & Burton Hospitals Charity

Royal Derby Hospital

Uttoxeter Road

We aim to send out thank you letters for every single donation we receive, but due to sickness and skeleton staffing, this may take us a little longer than normal so please bear with us.

We also appreciate you following us on social media, and there will be loads of updates from us in the coming months, (follow us via the social buttons below)

What is Derby & Burton Hospitals Charity Lottery?2019-02-05T12:35:18+00:00

Our lottery is a weekly charity cash prize draw that provides a vital source of funding for Derby & Burton University Hospitals Trust.

The lottery raises thousands of pounds for the hospital and helps to purchase vital equipment such as ECG machines (electro cardiograph) and extras such as comfy chairs in Maternity to provide comfort and support for family and friends staying with new mums.

We are here to help make lives better. Your amazing donations help the charity provide the extras that NHS statutory funding can’t, but make a huge difference to our patients and staff.

What are the benefits of the new lottery?2019-02-05T12:40:39+00:00

After merging with Burton and covering more sites with our charity, we wanted to take the opportunity to expand our lottery and make it even more rewarding for you to join.

Our new lottery will enable us to reach more supporters and secure more funding for your hospitals.

By signing up and playing the lottery, you are already making a difference to the lives of local families.

Regular giving helps the charity plan for the future. It means that the charity is able to support patients and staff at the hospital in a number of ways from providing equipment when it is needed to funding the arts programme, bringing art into our hospitals.

Nobody wants to be in hospital but the charity is committed to ensuring that everyone’s stay in hospital is as good as it can be.


How will being a member of the lottery benefit patients?2019-02-05T12:41:52+00:00

Each member who plays will purchase an entry into the weekly lottery at £1 per entry. All profits will improve the care and treatment of patients in Derbyshire and Staffordshire. To find out more about areas that have been funded visit www.dbhc.org.uk or call us on 01332 785731.
