About East Kent Hospitals Charity

East Kent Hospital Charity Logo

East Kent Hospitals Charity raises funds for the wards and services provided by East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust.

Our NHS heroes have faced the biggest challenge that the NHS has ever seen. If you would like to support our amazing staff, please donate here.

Your donations will ensure that we can fund initiatives specific to staff well-being during COVID-19, including:

  • Snacks for teams.
  • Additional facilities on wards to enhance patient care.
  • Toiletries for staff so that they can shower before leaving the hospital.
  • Practical assistance and support. 


You can find out more about the work we are doing to support our NHS Heroes here. You can also find information about how we have supported staff wellbeing, here.

Through the generous support of individuals and organisations in the community we also:

  • Fund vital medical research
  • Provide specialist equipment at the cutting edge of technology
  • Improve treatment facilities
  • Support staff development
  • Create a healing environment to promote well-being within clinical spaces.

Our aim

We aim to make our hospitals and healthcare services the very best they can be for our patients as well as their families and the staff treating them.
