How your support helps


Your donations and fundraising enables us to purchase state of the art equipment, sometimes quicker than we could through NHS budgets, and to provide the best care and comfort for the 1.1 million people we serve each year.

At Bradford Royal Infirmary, we have one of the busiest accident and emergency departments in the country, dealing with more than 125,000 attendances per year.  We also have one of the busiest maternity units in the country, delivery more than 6,000 babies every year.

Our charity supports every single patient, every day, and is here for every family in Bradford.

So whether you choose to hold a bake sale, get training for one of our sports events, or organise a sponsored fancy dress day at your work or school – you’ll be doing something brilliant for Bradford.

Sunshine Fund

Donations to the Sunshine Fund benefit all areas of our hospitals, from supporting vital services such as intensive care and accident and emergency, to providing art therapies on wards, Christmas presents for patients in our hospitals, overnight essentials for family members needing to stay in hospital with their loved ones unexpectedly.

Children and Special Care Babies

Your donations help the youngest patients in our care – from the 6,000 babies we deliver every year, to the special care babies we ensure get the best start, and the children and teenagers who we look after every day.

Cancer Care Fund

Your donations have supported the refurbishment of the main cancer care ward at Bradford Royal Infirmary – helping to make patients as comfortable as possible when undergoing cancer care.  We now want to improve the hospital environments for all our cancer patients including the chemotherapy ward.

Dementia and Elderly Care Fund

Charity funding has paid for a number of items used on our elderly and dementia wards, such as the state-of-the-art Mylife software, as well as dementia friendly clocks. We work closely with the Trust's dementia lead to fundraise for distraction items to make our patients feel more at east when they are in hospital.
