Walk for Wards
Walk for Wards is being launched nationally this summer. We are the first NHS Charity in Scotland to get involved, so let's dust oor boots off and get together for a walk. You can do it any date in July, your walk can be long or short and with as many friends as you like. Please choose the fund that you'd like to support from our list on walkforwards.co.uk and get a little sponsorship and enjoy your walk! If you'd like to raise money for a ward/speciality or fund that isn't on the list, please do get in touch and we will add it on for you.
If you'd like any further support or assistance, please contact the Fundraising Team via email or on 01896 825520.
Cash for Kids
In December 2012 the refurbishment of the children’s play area in ED was officially opened by Rory Bremner. This was funded by Radio Borders local charity ‘Cash for Kids’.
A Space to Grow
The ‘a space to grow’ project progressed significantly during the course of the year, with the £9870 funds awarded from Awards for All. In August 2012 the project received match funding of £9870 from the Friends of the Borders General Hospital.
Kidney Dialysis Appeal
A previous fundraising appeal was the Kidney Dialysis Appeal which originally set out to raise £120,000 to support the expansion of the Haemodialysis Unit at the Borders General Hospital.
Thanks to the exceptional generosity of the people of the Borders, including dialysis patients and their friends and family, we have raised £250,442.85 and the new unit welcomed patients on the 26th June 2011.
James Marjoribanks, The Difference Fundraising Appeal Chair, said: “I should like to thank everyone who made donations, both large and small, that have allowed us to provide a specially enhanced dialysis unit that patients in the Borders will get the benefit of for years to come.”
