Make a difference in 2023 by supporting Hywel Dda Health Charities

HYWEL Dda Health Charities has announced a range of events and fundraising ideas for 2023 as it looks forward to celebrating the NHS’s 75th birthday in style!

If you are still looking to make some New Year resolutions, the charity has got something to suit everyone, whether you’re sporty, simply like a cuppa, or are a downright thrill seeker.

Each of the charity’s planned events gives people the opportunity to support their NHS charity and help make a positive difference in the health, well-being and experience of NHS patients, service users and staff across the Hywel Dda University Health Board area. 

Here are a few ideas for fantastic New Year’s resolutions: 

I want to face my fears. You could take the leap and sign up to a skydive for your NHS charity. Partnering with Skyline Events, Hywel Dda Health Charities is now offering the ultimate thrill seeker the opportunity to brave a skydive at a number of locations around the UK. You can sign up for the truly exhilarating experience today by following this link http://bitly.ws/y33k

I want to be more active. You could run, swim or cycle at the Long Course Weekend! For the second year running, Hywel Dda Health Charities is the ‘Powered By partner for the Wales Half Marathon at the 2023 Long Course Weekend which is recognised as one of the best and most challenging races out there! This partnership offers our fundraisers free spaces in events across the whole Long Course Weekend Wales, including swimming, running and cycle events. And all while making a difference for their local NHS charity! To secure a place, click here

I want to engage my local community. You could set up your own summer tea party for the NHS’ 75th birthday! It’s an excellent opportunity for communities to come together and pay tribute to brilliant staff and volunteers, who have gone above and beyond in recent years. 

I want to make a regular donation. You could sign up for the weekly charity lottery! For just £1 per entry, you could be in with a chance of winning up to £25,000. Not only will you have the chance to win, but you will be helping to raise funds for your NHS charity. To sign up, click here.
