Help Leeds Teaching Hospitals: 

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive support to set up a fundraiser page to share with your family and friends. The money you raise will support teams across our hospitals – here are some examples of where your money could be used: 

  • Raising £100 for Leeds Hospitals Charity could pay for a wig for someone experiencing hair loss during cancer treatment, along with specialist support from the on-site hair loss service.  
  • Raising £200 for Leeds Hospitals Charity could pay for arts and craft supplies for the play specialist team to use on a ward, helping to make hospital less scary for some of our youngest patients.
