Another important positive that came out of the crisis we have been experiencing has been the increased focus on one of Britain’s most worthy charities, NHS Charities Together.
Much of the credit for this is down to one man: Captain Sir Thomas Moore who single-handedly raised more than £30 million for the charity through his JustGiving page. The charity was also the beneficiary of other high profile work by Dame Vera Lynn, Katherine Jenkins, Zara Tindall, Frankie Dettori and many others.
The charity describes itself as follows:
NHS Charities Together is the new trading name of The Association of NHS Charities, a membership organisation representing, supporting and championing NHS Charities.
NHS Charities Together provides a forum for nationwide fundraising and advocacy campaigns; specialist advice and guidance; bespoke conferences and training opportunities, as well as access to online resources and support through exclusive member pages on our website.
NHS Charities Together also provides the collective voice of NHS Charities on a National scale and the impact they make.
NHS Charities help to meet all strands of the NHS Long Term Plan. Find out how in our NHS Charities Together brochure.
