Above & Beyond raises money to enhance the patient care in Bristol city centre hospitals. Their fundraising activity helps to enhance the lives of more than 840k patients who are currently admitted into our hospitals each year, as well as the many family and friends who visit the patients and the 9,000 NHS personnel who look after them.
The activities they fund create welcoming hospital environments, support innovated research to deliver the treatments of tomorrow and beyond, provide specialist medical training and state-of-the-art equipment in the 9 central Bristol hospitals.
The hospitals’ current fundraising needs include sleeper chairs, for relatives of cancer patients who are being treated in the Bristol Oncology and Haematology Centre (BHOC). There is currently no sleeping accommodation for relatives in the BHOC, which can be particularly hard for the families of end of life cancer patients. The children’s hospital need funds to provide sensory activities for children waiting for clinic appointments in the outpatient department.
With the help of their wonderful donors, fundraisers, corporate partners, charitable trusts and volunteers, they are able to go above and beyond what the NHS has the means to do. All money raised is spent in the city centre hospitals.
