Be a part of Whitby Community Hospital for years to come
Date: 21 September 2022
After working with our staff, patients and local community engagement members on the revitalisation of Whitby Hospital, we understand how much the hospital means to those who live around it, those who have worked there in the past, and to those who have been cared for by our brilliant teams over the years.
Our Trust Charity, Health Stars, has worked with you over the last years to launch the Whitby Hospital Appeal fundraising campaign, which aims to add that ‘extra sparkle’ to hospital services, ensuring the building is not only purpose built, but really meets the needs of the communities it serves.
As part of the Whitby Hospital Appeal, Health Stars have launched their ‘Buy a Brick’ project, which allows people to buy a personalised brick which will form part of the landscaping wall on site.
This means that the brick can be printed with anything you want on there, to have your very own part of the hospital’s legacy.
So far, people have bought bricks to commemorate loved ones who were cared for at the hospital, or have dedicated their brick to honour a member of staff who went above and beyond for them in their time of need.
Sponsoring a brick is a fantastic opportunity to create a lasting tribute – and you can personalise it in any way that you want. You could include your own name, someone else’s or even a business or team, for example.
Bricks cost £20 each, but higher donations are gratefully received.
If you are interested in buying a brick, find out more and download an order form on the Health Stars website here: https://healthstars.org.uk/whitby/
Alternatively, if you are visiting Whitby Hospital in the coming weeks, you will find our Whitby Hospital Appeal table in the lower entrance, near the café. Where you can collect and submit an order form in person.
All money raised as part of this campaign goes towards the Whitby Hospital Appeal, which is fundraised via Trust Charity, Health Stars. A great example of the way funds have been spent so far is the creation of the on site dementia friendly garden, for staff, patients and visitors of the hospital to enjoy year round.
Buy a brick for £20 to raise money for Health Stars.
