The Medway Hospital Charity

About The Medway Hospital Charity

The Medway Hospital Charity exists to fund projects for patient and staff benefit. Thanks to your generous donations, they have been able to buy much-valued additional equipment, refurbish wards and patient areas, plus commission training and health and wellbeing projects over and above the NHS budget.

It is a real privilege to do this work, and without your support this work would not be possible. Your gift, no matter how big or small, plays a vital part in continuing their hospital's amazing work. Your donations have supported more than 50 teams across the hospital from cancer, critical care, maternity, children's services, frailty, cardiology, orthopaedics, respiratory and diabetes.

By playing the weekly make a smile lottery, The Medway Hospital Charity will be able to make an even more positive impact on services. The money raised will go into their general fund so that any team across the hospital can apply for funding.

From your very first game, you will be helping The Medway Hospital Charity to raise funds that will go back into Medway Maritime Hospital. Some examples of what your contribution could pay for are:

  • £10 helps to pay for an activity pack to support patients in the hospital.
  • £25 Could pay for newspapers for patients to read in their Discharge Lounge.
  • £30 is all that is needed for snacks and drinks for their staff Wellbeing Hub.
  • £250 can go towards a television for a ward.
  • £860 pays for a buddy chair, so families can stay over night with their loved one.
  • £4,100 is the total needed to pay for a vein finder to support patients in their Cancer Unit.

How Do I Win?

When you join, we will allocate you with a lottery play number. Our draws are randomly drawn each Friday (with exception when this is a Bank Holiday, when it will take place the working day prior). You don’t need to check the results every week, although you can if you want to. If you win, we will contact you to let you know. If we have your email, your prize winnings will automatically go into your make a smile lottery account; where you can then request a withdrawal, after which monies are then transferred into your bank account, or if you don’t have an email with us, a letter and cheque will be sent via post (please make sure that we have your up to date address).
