As a not for profit company, we’ve always believed in giving something back to the communities we work in. And with the NHS facing increasing pressures and charitable donations more essential than ever, our support can be invaluable.

Since 1996, we’ve donated more than £15 million to the NHS and health and wellbeing related charities, helping to keep thousands of people at their healthy best.

We donate to both large national and smaller, local charities, helping out wherever we can and working harder to nurture the health and wellbeing of communities across the UK.

Teenage Cancer Trust

£35,000 to build an en-suite room & additional space for teenage cancer patients within Sheffield Childrens Hospital, to help improve the experience for younger patients.

Sheffield Children’s Hospital are looking to provide an expanded paediatric oncology service within the hospital which is where Teenage Cancer Trust would have a bigger dedicated space for their own specialist support of teenagers. Discussions are underway on an integrated approach so a dedicated Teenage Cancer Trust ward can be included which would include the funded 2 rooms by The Westfield Health Charitable Trust.

British Heart Foundation

£45, 000 to close the appeal for a new heart scanner.

Graham Moore, Trustee of the Westfield Health Charitable Trust said: “We are delighted to have played our part in this successful fundraising campaign, by making a £45,000 donation to close this appeal.

“The echocardiogram machine will help the medical team diagnose and monitor heart conditions and we’re very proud to help support and enhance the services and care patients receive at Rotherham Hospital.”

Cavendish Cancer Care

£50,000 toward building a wellbeing suite at the new premises on Wilkinson Street.

"The donation was used to create the reception and training room on the ground floor of the new Tim Pryor Centre at 34 Wilkinson Street. The reception is the heart of the organisation, where guests are welcomed and put at ease from the moment they arrive. Thanks to Westfield’s donation, this room has been furnished with cosy décor, where guests can relax in a comfortable armchair with tea and biscuits whilst they wait for their session. The centre is an escape from clinical hospital environments: a home away from home."

Ashgate Hospicecare

£103,025 toward building a sunroom off the inpatient unit & to finance a dementia friendly courtyard as part of the "Bringing home to the hospice" project.

Esther Preston Director of Fundraising said “Karen, our ward manager and her team are really looking forward to the summer when their patients will be able to enjoy the new sunroom and dementia friendly courtyard with their families in the sunshine together.”

HorseWorld

£6,060 toward funding two disabled access toilets for their education programme.

HorseWorld was founded in 1952 and the original aims were to save the lives of working horses from needless slaughter. Over the years the Charity has grown and adapted and in 2008 they began Discovery Courses, bringing together rescued horses, many of which have been abandoned, abused and cruelly treated themselves, with children and young adults with learning, physical, emotional, mental and behavioural difficulties. Discovery Courses provide young people with competencies that give them the best possible chance of succeeding in the future, by using the horses as a unique learning tool to promote personal development, support emotional growth and learning through close contact with their horses it improves students’ capacity to concentrate; communicate; work as a team; be self-motivated, confident and exercise self-control. Those who find it hard to concentrate or to control their impulses can focus on a horse for long periods while grooming or leading the animal. Withdrawn students often begin to express themselves, developing words or gestures they haven’t previously used. The Charitable Trust funded two disabled access toilets which will be extremely helpful to the children and young adults attending our Discovery Courses.
