The unique way we operate our charitable trust means the community can tell us which area of the hospital they would like their fundraising to go towards – and we can guarantee that your donation goes to that individual ward, piece of equipment or in memory of a loved one.
West Suffolk Hospital is your hospital. Put it simply, your fundraising has made a direct difference to the care we can provide to yourselves, your family and friends and the local community.
