We’re very grateful for the generosity of our local community who put their time and kindness into donating to our trust enabling us to fund projects and services above and beyond what the NHS can offer, enhancing the care our patients across East Durham, Hartlepool, Stockton on Tees and surrounding areas receive.

Other ways to donate
Will or legacy
You can leave a lasting legacy and make a huge difference to the patient care we can provide by leaving a gift in your will.
Gifts in kind
Donations enable the Trust to provide a range of items and services for patients and staff that aren’t routinely funded by the government.
However we know that many people like to purchase items themselves and donate them directly to the ward or department of their choice, and we value non-financial gifts that will help support our staff and patient experience.
For the safety of our patients and staff we do have some rules which we have to follow with regards to this.
We would prefer that you donate the money and specify that you wish it to be spent on items such as these. But if you have already purchased a gift of this kind please contact the charity office to discuss bringing it in. We will check that it can be used by the area you’d like it to go to and we will ensure that you receive a letter of thanks for your donation.
Toys and Games
We are very lucky to be so well supported by many people who choose to donate toys and games throughout the year and especially at Christmas. But please note we are only able to accept new, boxed toys and games (other than DVDs and Xbox/PlayStation games).
If you would like to donate gifts and necessities to one of our services contact the charity team by email at [email protected] so we can liaise with the wards to arrange a presentation if this is something you would like.
Some items we cannot take:
What we can’t accept
- used toys
- knitted clothes
- oversized soft toys
- large mechanical or motorised toys
- used clothing or shoes
- second-hand books
- used magazines
Donate in memory
We know that losing someone close to you can be incredibly difficult, which is why many families choose to support our charity and donate in memory of their loved one, as a special way to honour their memory.
There are many ways to make a donation in memory:
- Make a donation in their name – Donate in the name of your loved one online or in person. You may also wish to hand over your donation to the staff or ward that cared for your loved one
- Collecting donations at a funeral, and/or asking friends and family to make a donation in lieu of flowers is a meaningful way to remember a loved one
- Honour someone who meant a lot to you by doing your own fundraising or take part in an event or challenge – is a special way to celebrate their life and raise money in their memory
