Making a donation

We are constantly always amazed by the generosity of our patients, relatives, staff and members of the public who devote their time and effort to fundraising for our hospitals and community services.

The generosity helps us to enhance the services provided by medical and nursing staff within your hospitals and local communities, providing a public benefit to our patients.

Our charitable donations are managed by the County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust Charity, which is registered with the Charity Commission (Registration number 1053467).  The charity operates within the laws that apply to charities in England and Wales, and is regulated by the Charity Commission.
