Hywel Dda Health Charities sets #NHS75 challenge for fundraisers

HYWEL Dda Health Charities, the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, is calling on supporters to fundraise for their NHS in celebration of its 75th birthday this year.

The NHS charity raises funds to provide additional activities and services which are beyond what the NHS can normally provide. 

The charity is inviting individuals and communities to show their love for their NHS by having fun with the 75th birthday theme.

Tara Nickerson, Fundraising Manager, said:

“However people fundraise, and however much they raise, it will make a big difference to the experiences of NHS patients, service users and staff.

“The charity raises funds for a number of services and activities: these might be additional patient comforts, up-to-date medical equipment, staff development and wellbeing initiatives, or more welcoming surroundings for patients.

“We want this year’s 75th birthday to inspire people to show their love for the NHS, and to have a lot of fun in the process!”

Fundraisers are being invited to be as creative as they want with the #NHS75 theme, for example, by:

  • Walking, running, swimming or cycling 75 miles in 2023 and asking their friends and family to sponsor them
  • Holding a tea party and charging 75p for a cuppa and a cake
  • Organising a 75p-an-item jumble sale
  • Holding a raffle at 75p per ticket
  • Holding a vintage day and transporting their friends and family back to 1948
  • Doing a sponsored silence that lasts 7.5 hours
  • Holding a school ‘dress up as a nurse or doctor’ or own clothes day with a 75p donation. 

Tara added:

“If you would like to fundraise for your NHS charity this special year, please do get in touch. We would love to hear from you, and our fundraising team is on hand to offer help, support and inspiration.”
