Story

Donate the price of a takeaway coffee and help to purchase vital equipment for Birmingham Children's Hospital Radiology Department.

We are the Radiology Department team at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and our world-renowned hospital cares for children from all around the country who have a wide range of illnesses and conditions. It may not generally be known just what a vital role radiology plays in the diagnosis and treatment of our young patients. Our radiology team provides essential assistance in all aspects of their care whether it be in the Oncology or Cardiology Departments, the operating theatres, ITU or A&E to name just a few.


Various fundraising appeals are undertaken each year in aid of our wonderful hospital for which we are immensely grateful. However, quite understandably the funds raised are generally donated towards specific, high profile medical equipment in other departments or for facilities to make our patients’ stay more comfortable. There are many improvements that we would love to see in the Radiology Department however we desperately need of a new X-ray / Fluoroscopy Room and this is our main aim.


The Radiology team were preparing for several fundraising events due to take place throughout 2020, for example the Wolf Run Assault Course. However due to the current Corona-virus crisis some of these organised events may now have to be postponed until a later date. In the meantime, we are having to consider alternative ways to raise the much-needed funds. We are hoping that by spreading the word through social media and asking enough people for just small donations, perhaps the cost of a cup of coffee then we can help reach the target we need. It would great if you could consider foregoing just one cup of coffee, donating the cost and helping our wonderful hospital and the children who need our help.

Birmingham Children's Hospital Charity believes there is always more that we can do for our young patients and that is why we will always strive to do more for them and their families.  It's our mission to raise the vital funds needed to make a real difference to all who need our hospital.

Thank you for taking the time to read this message and we really hope that you may be able to help.

About the charity

It's bewildering and unsettling for anyone going into hospital but especially for children and that is why we are a fundraising hospital. We raise funds to enhance the experience of our patients by providing state of the art medical equipment and facilities and creating a child-friendly environment.
