History


Bradford Teaching Hospitals has provided the very best specialist care to sick patients for many decades.

But without the determination of our leaders, the bravery of our patients and, crucially, the generosity of our amazing supporters, we simply would not be able to provide the standard of care we do.

Thanks to supporters, volunteers and partners like you, we’ve made astonishing progress since Bradford Royal Infirmary was built in 1936.

And our history is growing every day, with every patient we treat. Read our latest news to see how your support is transforming lives, young and old.

If you’d like to help us support some of the most vulnerable people in the region, there are many ways you can help us write history too. You could:

  • Organise a fundraising event
  • Volunteer with us
  • Donate to an existing appeal
  • Join a Bradford Hospitals’ Charity challenge or
Be a part of something incredible

Join our amazing community of supporters by signing up for one of our events – whether you’re looking for a physical challenge or one of our awesome activities.

And why not invite your friends or sign up as a family? Experiences are always better shared and it’s always good to have someone else to share the journey with, knowing you’re making a real difference to real lives.

If you can’t find an event that tempts you, get some ideas on how to organise your own event, or check out our fundraising resources!

A helping hand

We’re ever grateful to the amazing volunteers who cheer our supporters to the finish line and make sure events run smoothly, too. Find out what volunteer opportunities are available to you today, and help us support our incredible supporters!

About our events

We’ve got loads of events happening throughout the year. From adrenaline-fuelled activities such as skydiving and abseiling to those which require a slightly less adventurous spirit, we’ve got the perfect event for you. And the best bit is, whatever you do, you’ll be supporting the amazing work of Bradford Teaching Hospitals.

Some of the patients in our care are avid football fans, while others love to read. Our wards are also home to passionate dancers and singers in the making.

Every patient is different, and so is every supporter. Whoever you are and whatever you care about, why not join #TeamBradford? Together, we can do even more.

Donate

Donate

Thank you so much for supporting patients at Bradford Teaching Hospitals. Your support allows us to provide the highest standards of healthcare. You make it all possible!

Our major appeals and campaigns may get the headlines, but there’s a huge amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure patients in our care get the very best treatment in the very best environment. 

Your generous gift might help fund life-saving equipment or provide the resources to decorate a waiting room – or any of a thousand other areas where we make a difference every day.

Wherever your money goes, it will make a vital contribution to our ultimate aim: to support every single patient, every single day.

Give in memory

Giving in memory is a special way to remember a loved one while making a valuable contribution to our hospitals in their name.

Our ‘Give in memory’ envelopes can be used at a funeral or memorial event to collect donations that will benefit the patients and their families at our hospitals and can be ordered here: (charity@bthft.nhs.uk)

You can also set up a JustGiving in memory page for those who want to donate online: (https://www.justgiving.com/en/in-memory)

Give a regular gift in memory of a loved one

Alternatively, why not make a regular gift on a particular day or month every year?

Set up a regular gift here.

Organising an event in memory of a loved one

You can register a unique event or challenge event in your loved one’s name here too.

We understand that donating in memory is a very personal way of remembering someone and we really appreciate your support. You can choose to support a particular department or the charity as a whole and help us achieve even more for some of the region’s sickest patients.
