Fundraisers and volunteers joined staff at the Royal Stoke University Hospital to celebrate the official opening of the UHNM Charity stand.

University Hospitals of North Midlands (UHNM) Charity will use the purpose-built stand in the Royal Stoke’s main entrance to engage with patients, staff and visitors and help raise the profile of the charity in a bid to attracting further donations and fundraising .

 

The stand was officially opened by UHNM Chief Executive Tracy Bullock.

Speaking after the opening ceremony, Mrs Bullock said: “Our charity relies on the generosity and passion of our supporters to enable it to improve the care and experience of people who use UHNM services. This new stands makes it easier than ever for our fundraisers, patients and staff to get involved, allowing them to speak in person to a member of the charity team about the ways they can make a difference at both the Royal Stoke University Hospital and County Hospital in Stafford.

The stand features an exhibition space, 50-inch television showcasing the work of UHNM Charity, as well as office space for charity staff.

The opening ceremony was also attended by Consultant Urologist Mr Anurag Golash, who will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro from 22 July on behalf of UHNM Charity to raise funds to improve the Urology Ambulatory Unit he works in.

Mr Golash said: “I encourage as many people as possible to get involved with UHNM Charity. Without our supporters we couldn’t continue to improve the quality of care, comfort and experience of the people who use UHNM services every day of the year.”

The UHNM Charity stand will be open to members of the public Monday to Friday, 10am-2pm in the main atrium of the Royal Stoke University Hospital.
