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

We desperately need to preserve the key services to CGH; A&E (as a 24/7 dept.) and general surgery, which will keep it functioning as a fully-fledged General Hospital. Losing this status, as an ‘acute hospital’ that receives emergency patients, will mean that EVERY resident in Gloucestershire will have to travel to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital (GRH) for emergency care. GRH often has no available beds, which will lead to much longer waiting times in A&E, more patients lying on trolleys in corridors and people being transferred out of county.

Therefore, this will affect not just those living in Cheltenham and North of Gloucestershire, but everyone in Gloucestershire as a whole!

      It’s VITAL to keep A&E services in Cheltenham. Gloucester Royal already can’t cope... and the Cheltenham community will be placed in danger by this move...

      This is a growing popular town and together with an increasing retired population this service is essential.

    Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

    The Restore Emergency At Cheltenham Hospital campaign launched in 2013 to restore a fully functioning A&E Dept operating 24/7 at Cheltenham General Hospital (CGH). Further threats to services at CGH prompted REACH to widened its role to “Keeping Cheltenham a General Hospital”.
