We make things better to help staff, patients & their families


University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire (UHCW) Charity makes things better for NHS staff, patients and their families. 

Even before the pandemic we all know what a fantastic job the NHS does.

The charity supports the well-being of NHS staff by providing mental health training sessions.  

They also fund equipment and improve the environment for patients.

They also support families, funding a bereavement garden for those who have suffered the loss of a child and family communication rooms, so that families can discuss their loved ones' care in privacy and peace.

£10 buys a toy for a child to play with whilst they're in hospital. 

£100 funds arts and crafts activities for older patients to enjoy.

£500 funds a heat pad for cancer patient's to manage their pain.

Also as part of this years challenge I will be continuing with my press up challenge as well as reluctantly giving up: chocolate, sweets and alcohol for twelve months and donating the money saved to the UHCW Charity (roughly £10-20 a week). 

Thank you all for your continued support.
