Charity and fundraising

Support our charitable fund

We are grateful to all those patients, their families and members of staff who fundraise or make gifts to the Trust each year.

Some donations come in the form of direct funding for specific projects but most gifts are received by our Southport and Ormskirk Hospital Charity (registered charity 1049227). It supports patients’ welfare, staff education and providing additional equipment at our hospitals.

As far as reasonably practical, gifts are used in accordance with the givers’ wishes. Where the donation has been made for a specific purpose, this is accepted as binding.

Donations to are welcome from individuals, companies and fundraising groups. Send them to:

Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals Charity
PO Box 134
Southport, Merseyside
PR8 6PN

Make your cheque payable to “Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust” and specify in your accompanying letter if the donation is for a particular ward or department. If your donation is eligible for Gift Aid, you can download a form here.

 

Give by text

You can also donate on your mobile phone by texting SOHT01 £10 to 70070 to given £10. Just change the figure to give more or less.

 

Regular gift

Regular donations by Standing Order help us cut our administration costs so more of your money goes straight to us. Contact your bank to find out how to set one up.

 

Payroll giving

Payroll Giving allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to charities of their choice. Donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you’re a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p. To find out more, contact the payroll department at your place of work. For more information please visit https://www.gov.uk/payroll-giving

 

Leaving a gift in your will or donating in memory

Charitable legacies are paid before tax is deducted, therefore reducing the amount of tax that has to be paid when your estate is being distributed. A gift in your will can take the form of:

A residuary gift: this is the remainder of your estate once your family have been provided for

A pecuniary gift: this is a specific sum of money pledged to charity

A specific gift: this can be property, stocks and shares or other valuables such as a piece of jewellery
