Take part in our NEW fundraising event, exclusively for nurseries, schools & colleges!

Pounds for Patients has been created to get thousands of pupils and teachers involved at nurseries, schools and colleges across Bath, Somerset and Wiltshire. The aim is to help us raise vital funds for patients and their families who visit and stay at the Royal United Hospital, in Bath.

We can’t wait to launch Pounds for Patients on Friday 13 October and would love as many nurseries, schools and colleges to join us on this day.


Whether you hold a non-school uniform day, organise a bake sale or take your teddy along, for every £1 donated on the day, you can be assured that your nursery, school or college will be helping transform the care for thousands of patients and their families who visit the RUH every year.

Pounds for Patients is simple:
1. Sign up here to receive your free fundraising pack
Sign up online now
2. Decide how your nursery, school or college will fundraise on 13 October (there’s lots of fun ideas in our fundraising pack)
3. Everyone who takes part donates £1 on the day!

It’s FREE to sign up and in return you’ll receive our fundraising pack, full of creative ideas on how you can raise funds for the RUH. ‘Big Ted’, our friendly, loveable mascot for The Forever Friends Appeal may even pay your nursery or school a visit! Plus, there’ll be other prizes to be won on the day.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up today and join us on Friday 13 October!
