About Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals Charity

Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals Charity want to transform healthcare in the community. They will push the boundaries of possibility to make every patient experience the best it can possibly be. With the money they raise they can deliver more than is possible with NHS funding alone. From large scale building projects and refurbishing wards to make them dementia friendly, through to the latest neonatal incubators and comfortable reclining chairs for expectant parents, there are no boundaries to what they can achieve.

Thanks to you they make a difference to over 8,000 people a day at East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust.

Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals Charity is at the heart of enhancing care, services and facilities for patients across East Suffolk and North Essex. By working together they can:

  • Improve facilities.
  • Fund new equipment.
  • Provide additional services.
  • Support staff development and wellbeing.
  • Initiate local medical research and innovative projects.

From your very first game, you will be helping Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals Charity raise vital funds that will go back into the community. Some examples of what your contribution could pay for are:

  • £5 could buy non-slip slippers for elderly patients.
  • £50 could help run a support group for patients with a serious illness.
  • £100 could buy a special cushion to help stroke patients.
  • £500 would pay for a music system in their Cancer Wellbeing Centre.
