Festive outfits raise funds for North Manchester General Hospital charity
21 December 2018

Fundraisers at North Manchester General Hospital have been selling Christmas outfits to raise money for the hospital’s charitable fund.

The Pennine Acute Hospitals Charity supports North Manchester, Royal Oldham and Fairfield Hospitals, and Rochdale Infirmary, helping to fund additional equipment, training and research which will enhance care and facilities for patients.

A stall in the hospital’s busy main entrance has raised £166.25, selling gift items including children’s elf and Father Christmas outfits, t-shirts and babygrows, hand-knitted baby clothes and a selection of books for all ages.

Shelley Owen, Charitable Fundraising Co-ordinator, said: “Thank you to staff and members of the public for donating items for us to sell on behalf of the Pennine Acute Hospitals Charity, and to everyone who has bought and contributed to the fund. The money raised will have a direct impact on the care we are able to provide for patients across North Manchester as well as Oldham, Bury and Rochdale.”

In donating to the Pennine Acute Hospitals Charity people can choose to support a particular hospital, a specific ward or department, or one of the named appeals. Find out more on the Trust Charity webpage.
