“The Charity’s core mission is to enhance the care and treatment of patients using our hospitals by raising funds and making grants to support areas beyond the scope of NHS funding.”
“Amy’s Retreat is a charity based in South Yorkshire, set up to allow families with children suffering or recovering from cancer to take a much needed break and give them quality time away from day to day routines.” The organisation raises funds to families to take a break at Center Parcs resort in Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, including transport and provisions hamper.
Part of the Mind group, this local break provides mental health services that “range from counselling and psychotherapy to anger management courses and workshops on topics such as emotional wellbeing and living a healthy lifestyle.”
The Sheffield Talking News produces USB memory sticks with audio recordings of local news for those who are blind, visually impaired or unable to read a newspaper because of a disability. There is no charge for the service, which currently posts out over 400 memory sticks a week.
“Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield is one of only four dedicated cancer hospitals in England.
