Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
We’re delighted to announce our chosen charity for the upcoming year. Despite operating nationally, the team here are mostly local to the Fordingbridge HQ; this made the choice of charity for our fundraising efforts an easy one.
Love Your Hospital is the official charity name for Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust, encompassing Chichester, Worthing and Shoreham. The sterling fundraising efforts of the charity raise much needed funds for the hospitals, allowing facility upgrades and “little extras” which make all the difference. Everything from training weights for cardiac rehab patients to audiology machines for children’s centres, the charity are able to either pool the money, or direct it into a specialist department. This means Fordingbridge staff can raise funds directly for the hospitals and, should they wish, departments they specify.
What we get up to
Despite being a motivated team of incredibly professional surveyors, designers and engineers, we at Fordingbridge still like to have a bit of fun! Our fundraising efforts vary from pancake tosses, to sponsored silences, to assault-course runs!
Joan, pictured above with John Price from Love Your Hospital, is an incredibly mild-mannered yet bubbly Sales Administrator, but in May she will be scaling the roof of the O2 in Greenwich. Often the first point of contact for Fordingbridge clients, she will be braving the 380m trek, reaching the breathtaking views over the Thames at 164ft.
This will just be one of many fundraising events that members of the Fordingbridge team will be getting involved in over the next year
