“Our patients and local people, as well as staff and volunteers, are clearly very passionate about the work that we do and are keen to help us ensure that our hospitals have bright futures,” he said.
“However, people often ask how they can get more involved, from volunteering through to making a donation.
“And that’s why we’re running the “25days25ways” campaign in the run up to Christmas.
“Each day from December 1, we’ll be announcing a different way in which our patients and local people can support and celebrate the work of our hospitals.
“This includes the charities that work tirelessly to raise funds to help us buy new equipment, the hospital radio stations that keep our patients entertained, and the help groups that support patients in their time of need.
“I’d encourage as many local people to get show their support for our “25days25ways” campaign and to get more involved in the running of their local hospitals.”
