Northamptonshire Health Charity: Fantastic Fundraising Support For Local NHS Hospitals & Services

With the COVID19 pandemic, 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone. As the charity supporting Northampton General Hospital (NGH) and all the community and mental health hospitals and services across the county, Northamptonshire Health Charity saw an outpouring of support from the local community throughout the year. Thanks to this, the charity has funded a wide-range of projects and initiatives helping both patients and staff. From enhancing patient care and experience while no visitors are allowed and supporting staff with wellbeing packs and snacks; to bigger projects like relaxation and sensory rooms, gardening projects and a reflection garden at Northampton General Hospital.
