There is a long tradition of charitable support for the UK’s hospitals. While the NHS receives enormous public resources, there is always more we can do to support our patients and their families.

Funds raised by The Forever Friends Appeal help to pay for additional equipment, research and innovations, as well as finishing touches and ‘extras’ that complement the existing high quality care for patients at the Hospital.

As you explore our website, you will find many ways to get involved with the Charity and the efforts you make are very much appreciated by our patients and their families. We hope you will be able to get involved.


There are many ways in which you can fundraise for The forever Friends Appeal, whether as an individual or as part of a team.

There are many ways for schools and nurseries to get involved and engage their pupils to help make a difference in their local community.

Support a worthwhile cause that benefits hundreds and thousands of patients and their families, and give your staff something to smile about.

Your time and talent can be as valuable as a financial contribution. There are lots of different ways that you can get involved with what we do.

Whatever you are celebrating, make it extra special by asking friends and family to donate to The Forever Friends Appeal instead of buying gifts.

If you have been helped by the hospital or the Charity, please get in touch with us because your story might inspire someone else.

This annual event provides families, friends and carers, the opportunity to come together to remember and reflect on the memories of departed loved ones and absent friends.

There are many ways to make donations to The Forever Friends Appeal. Which ever way for chose, you will be making a real difference to the RUH.
