Tarporley War Memorial Hospital is one of the few remaining hospitals of its kind in the U.K and is run by a charitable trust. We are a 16 bedded hospital that offer medical and respite care for our elderly Community. Our staff are working tirelessly to support the public through this crisis, and so today we are appealing to you for your support. We had an exciting calendar of events planned over the next couple of months which we have had to cancel; sadly, this has been necessary in order to protect our supporters and our staff and attempt to delay the spread of this virus.
It costs £1.2 million to run the hospital each year. The NHS provides only a third of the income needed. The other two thirds come from respite and fundraising, which is made up of donations, events and legacies. As it requires around £3500 per day to run the hospital, every donation, however large or small, is equally valued by all our trustees, staff, volunteers and patients alike. But the reality is this pandemic will truly impact on us as a charity and therefore our ability to support the amazing work undertaken by our staff will suffer as a result.
Our wonderful nursing staff, cooks and cleaners are currently in a vulnerable position while continuing to work at the hospital and we are extremely proud of every single one of them. By donating whatever you can today, you can help us to continue some of our essential hospital and patient support. To learn more and donate please see the Tarporley Hospital website.
