Appeal Update

Since our NHS Hospital Heroes appeal was launched in March 2020, you have donated almost £390,000!

Those two small words “thank you” have taken on a whole new meaning, and without the help and kindness from people just like you, we simply wouldn’t be able to support our incredible NHS staff and patients at this time in the ways that we have. I want to say a sincere and heartfelt thank you.

We are incredibly proud of our NHS staff and we want to continue with our additional help in the months ahead.

If you have any more questions about our work, please contact us on 01274 274809 or at [email protected]

You can still say thank you

You can donate money via our Just Giving page at

£10 could pay for a comfort pack for staff having to stay overnight at short notice.

£20 could pay for a return taxi to work so that a member of staff does not need to use the bus.

£50 could stock a snack area for staff working long hours.

£100 could pay for a hotel room for staff needing to stay close to the hospital or isolate from their families to keep working.

£1,000 could pay for a hydration station to remain fully stocked with drinks and snacks for a ward for an entire month. The Trust will decide where the money is needed and will ensure your donations are spent to support staff through this crisis.


Our Intensive Care Unit and Covid wards are asking knitters to create matching hearts to provide comfort to very poorly patients and their families through very difficult times.

Please send your hearts in a sealed plastic bag (such as a freezer bag) with the date on to our ICU at: BRI Knitted Hearts Appeal, Bradford Royal Infirmary, Duckworth Lane, Bradford, BD9 6RJ.
