About the Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity

The Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity raises funds to make a real difference for our patients, their families, friends and the staff who treat them.

Your support for your local hospitals enables us to invest in projects that make your hospitals better for you.

Our aim is to create a comfortable and positive environment for all of our patients and staff, investing in improvements to our buildings, in state of the art equipment and extra care over and above that provided by the NHS.

Support your hospitals and help us do more for local people – you can even choose which part of the hospitals you would like your donation to benefit.

This can be done through a one off donation, regular giving by standing order, or by setting up a tribute fund in memory of a loved one.

You can also remember Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity in your will, a very straightforward way of leaving vital funds that enable us to plan for our future.

The Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity is a registered charity no: 1051606

Our charity web pages are currently under development but you can still donate online at Virgin Moneygiving and Just Giving. Gift Aid information is available on request from the Charity Fundraising Office.

Leaving a legacy

How your gift can make a lasting impact

Over the years a huge amount has been achieved thanks those who kindly choose to remember the hospitals in their will, and by family and friends giving in memory of someone they loved dearly.

Gifts in wills have made an impact on many areas of the hospitals, which look after a population of over 1 million people in Gloucestershire and surrounding counties.

By leaving a gift in your will you can help us to continue to provide extra care for patients and their families, by making a gift that will make a lasting difference to the hospitals. We understand that your loved ones will come first, but a gift of any size would be greatly appreciated, and can help to transform the lives of future patients and their families.

Gifts in wills help us to provide:

  • State of the art equipment
  • Improvements to our buildings and facilities and extra care over and above that provided by the NHS.

“Gifts in wills make an incredible difference to our work with patients on the stroke wards, and to so many other departments around the hospitals. For example, thanks to a recent legacy gift we were able to purchase a cardiac wireless telemetry system. This allows us to constantly monitor a patient, with the data being relayed directly to the nurses station, without the patient being having to be wired to a machine thus enabling them to freely continue with their stroke therapy.” Sandra Attwood, Matron for Stroke and Neurology

How to leave a gift in your will

Making or updating an existing will is easy to arrange and can make a lasting difference to our work. You can choose to support Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity (registered charity no. 1051606) and your support will help where it is needed most, or support a specific ward or area of work at the Hospitals.

The tax benefits of leaving a gift to charity

As a charity, leaving a gift to Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity also has benefits. Gifts in Wills are exempt from inheritance tax and if you choose to leave 10% of your estate to charity inheritance tax can be reduced from 40% to 36%.
