Ernie’s Big Challenge

Give a Hoot, Help Your Hospitals

Join our mascot Ernie on his “Big Challenge” this summer!

This is your chance to help raise vital funds to support all areas within Leeds Teaching Hospitals during this busy time.

The unexpected arrival of coronavirus is placing continued pressure on our local NHS services in Leeds, following a difficult winter.

Your NHS hospitals need our support now more than ever.

Raising just £50 could stock up a snack area for staff working long hours, a donation of £70 could fund bedside TV services for a ward for a week, keeping patients connected to their loved ones when visits have been cancelled during this time and £120 could fund a chaplain for a day, to support staff and patients in need  

Your donations will provide vital support to staff and patients during this busy time.

Check out some of our fundraising ideas you can get involved in to raise funds for our Support Your NHS Hospitals Appeal!
