CHARITIES

Cheltenham & Gloucester Hospitals Charity

The Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity raises funds to make a real difference for our patients, their families and the staff who treat them and work in Gloucestershire Royal and Cheltenham General Hospitals alongside the Stroud Maternity Unit.

Your support for the Charity enables us to invest in projects that make the hospitals better for you. Our aim is to create a comfortable and positive environment for all of our patients and staff, investing in improvements to our buildings, in state of the art equipment and extra care over and above that provided by the NHS.

COVID-19: Rapid Response Appeal

An appeal to support our amazing NHS staff. Our hospitals are under increasing pressure as a result of COVID-19. Donations to our appeal will help us to respond quickly for our staff, supporting them wherever the need is greatest.


Cheltenham Animal Shelter

'Cheltenham Animal Shelter is a charity that has been helping animals since 1926.

Based in the heart of Gloucestershire, we rescue and re-home unwanted and abandoned stray cats, dogs and small animals.

Each year we care for around 800 animals at a cost of £650,000 without the help of any Government funding.

We rely greatly on the generosity of animal lovers like you to ensure that our doors remain firmly open.

Providing we have space available, members of the public needing to re-home their dog, cat or small animal can sign them over in to our care. We are extremely careful that all of our animals find their right home by asking potential owners to complete a life-style questionnaire and conducting a home visit.

Cheltenham Animal Shelter are executive members of the ‘Association of Dogs and Cats Homes’, where we adhere to and exceed their code of practice. We also have dog boarding and cat boarding facilities available while you are away on holiday.'

FEED Cheltenham

We saw this message from Magdalena at Wellness in Motion and thought we'd share it with you here...

Some of us can struggle with not seeing friends and loneliness, others may struggle to put food on the table. We are not in the same boat. But we can help others float better during this storm.

With FEED Cheltenham you will be helping those in need of food in your local community.You can help by by sending money or by sharing their posts and promoting what they are doing. Every help counts.

As I live in #Cheltenham this is the area where I am focusing my efforts of supporting community and those in need.

FeedCheltenham is a group of schools, churches and organisations that have come together to provide households in financial need with grocery shopping vouchers. Over 500 households have received vouchers. If you can, support them with a little donation.

Here is a crowdfunding link for you - https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/feedcheltenham

Thank you for your kindness and support of this great cause!

Enabling Philanthropy

Our community partnerships foster long-term relationships to achieve meaningful impact and transform lives. We match donors with causes they care about, managing and distributing funds that get money to where it really matters.

We connect people with communities, deploying our knowledge of the local charitable landscape, and the social sector, to allocate grants where they will achieve maximum impact. We work with charities, social enterprises and community interest companies across Gloucestershire to improve people’s lives. Our advice can help donors to make informed decisions when it comes to which causes to support within your local area.

If you want to be more flexible with your giving or are unsure how to set up a fund to benefit your local community, we can help.

LINC

The Leukaemia & Intensive Chemotherapy Fund

We sincerely hope that you are keeping well. This is an extremely devastating time for all of us and our everyday lives have been turned upside down. Imagine, just for a moment, how incredibly vulnerable our leukaemia patients are in the current crisis.

Cancer care will not stop during this crisis. LINC is being asked to provide food deliveries to patients being discharged from the ward and fund travel expenses for children to be able to visit their mum following her stem cell transplant in Bristol. We continue to fund the clinical psychologists helping both patients and our staff at this stressful time as well as provide financial grants.

All of our future fundraising events have been postponed and the LINC Shop has closed. The charity is now totally reliant on your donations and generosity. Every single donation, whatever the amount, will enable LINC to continue our work. Why not donate the cost of your usual weekly takeaway, bottle of wine or daily commute to LINC and help us to continue our work. We would be so grateful.
