We hope you will kindly consider supporting the hospital by making a donation. Last year we raised over £12,000 and were thrilled to be able to help bring a bit of cheer to children and adults in hospital at Christmas time. The money raised also helped to buy extra equipment to benefit cancer, heart, stroke, sick children and special care babies.
Money is tight for the NHS but despite that, we are very proud that our local hospital strives to give the very best possible care and it is with the support of charitable donations that we are able to do so well.
On behalf of all the staff and patients at Darent Valley Hospital may we take this opportunity to wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year.
Here are some ways you can help us:
Celebrate a Life this Christmas
We invite you to join us celebrating a life of someone dear to you by making a donation in their name to benefit others.
A "Tribute Fund" will be set up in the name of each life being celebrated and you can decide where your donation will benefit.
We will acknowledge all donations with a letter and a special certificate in the name of the life being celebrated. Anyone donating £20 or more will also receive a 5.5 cm nickel-plated silver star with the words 'Celebrate a Life' to be hung up in a place of your choice to remember that special person.
Some wish to celebrate in memory of a life that has passed, a new life or a life that has been saved.
Donate instead of sending cards
Over 641 million cards are sent at Christmas in the UK. As we become more aware of the impact this has on our environment many people are turning to electric cards, emails and good old phone calls.
