    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    WHH Charity Manager, Helen Higginson, shared with me the hospital’s vision to continually provide additional comforts, care and experiences for the direct benefit of patients and their families beyond that which the NHS provide; part of this vision would be aimed towards their young patients. The chance to be able to offer each child the opportunity to pick up a book and read an adventure story or educational book whilst within the hospital’s care would really mean the world to them and, with your help and support, we can achieve this…

    How? Usborne Books at Home, the publisher of quality books for children of all ages, are working with WHH Charity, our local community and local businesses to fulfil our vision for the children. With your support our Community Pledge has the possibility to reach great heights - we would like to raise £1,000 over a two month period! Although at that point, whatever funding we have raised will be further supported by Usborne Books themselves who have generously pledged additional donation of books; for example, should we reach our target, they will donate £600 worth of additional books bringing the grand total to £1,600 worth of books all for the young people visiting WHH Trust.

      We didn't make the £1000, but we did raise £296.49. Usborne donated a further £88.95 in books making a total of £385.44 for the Warrington and Halton Hospital Charity to spend on books for the children's facilities in the hospitals in this NHS Trust. Thank you to everyone who donated towards this cause.

      I am pleased to announce that cash from businesses has begun coming in to the Community Book Pledge. The Pledge is running until 19 May and the final total raised will be announced here so that those donating through Just Giving will also be aware of how much money is raised outside of this page. Please pass this link to all your friends who have used, or will potentially use, any of the childrens' facilities in the Warrington & Halton Hospital NHS Trust. We really want to provide comfort and escapism for children in the area.

      Just to confirm, all funds raised here, apart from the fee charged by Just Giving, will go towards purchasing books for all children and young people who use any of the hospitals in the Warrington and Halton NHS Trust area; none of the funds go toward administration fees.
