Our charity funds vital equipment, patient care and staff development above and beyond that provided by the NHS. Your valued support makes a difference to all wards and departments across our hospitals at Macclesfield, Knutsford and Congleton and also across our extensive community services for all our patients.

Thanks to the generosity and support of the local community we’ve raised over £9 million pounds to date. Your donations have made a huge difference to the experience of thousands of patients, helping us to enhance patient care and support our fantastically professional staff team who work incredibly hard for the local community.

Any donation, however large or small, always makes a difference and there are many ways that you can donate. Please support our charity today – thank you.  Find out how your donations will make a difference.

Gift Aid

Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give the Inland Revenue gives us an extra 25 pence, helping your donation to go further and it won't cost you a penny. On top of that, if you are a higher rate taxpayer you can claim further tax relief on the donation in your annual tax return. It’s that simple!
