What We Do

WS Hospitals Charity

Whiston and St Helens Hospitals’ Charity raises funds to brighten the lives of patients and families every day. Every
single penny you donate
makes a difference, as without your help we couldn’t provide these special extras for our pat

Why we need your help

Each and every pound you give makes a real difference to our patients, their families and friends.

WS Hospitals’ Charity raises money for a range of projects and initiatives focusing on 3 main areas, care and treatment, specialist equipment and extra patient services. All of which are above and beyond what the NHS provide, enabling us to give our patients the best care possible.

Your donations really do have an impact at our charity. Without the support of our fantastic fundraisers we would not be able to give our patients and their families the level of care and support that we do.

Providing the communities of Knowsley, St Helens and beyond with world class hospitals and five star patient care is at the heart of everything we do. Every single penny raised, every event organised and every hour volunteered makes a huge difference to our patients.

From providing continuous funding for the Lilac Centre’s complementary therapies and counselling services, helping patients and their families cope with the effects of treatment, to raising money for entertainment systems for our younger long term patients, your donations are having a positive impact every single day.

We are first and foremost a local hospital charity,
we care for the people you care for.

But we’re not standing still, we need lots more support

so we can brighten the lives of lots more patients!
