New donation points offer a quick and easy way to donate at the Hospital
May 11th 2021
New Stars Appeal donation points offer a quick and easy way for our brilliant supporters to donate whilst visiting the Hospital.
There’s a new, quick and easy way to donate using our two new contactless donation points, located in the Main and Spring’s entrances at the Hospital.
The new devices give visitors to the Hospital the opportunity to donate £3 simply by tapping their credit or debit card or smart phone or watch. Our team of coin collection volunteers will collect alongside the contactless donations points and offer them as an alternative to those wishing to donate but who are not carrying cash.
Funds raised by the contactless donation points will help us to continue our work benefitting patients at Salisbury District Hospital and supporting the NHS staff who care for them. We aim to raise over £1million each year to fund projects which offer direct, practical support to patients, their loved ones and the Hospital’s staff. These projects include, advanced diagnostic and treatment equipment, creating new buildings and spaces in which care can be delivered in a bright, modern and patient focused environment and additional services such as free Wi-Fi and a Staff Counsellor.

Mr Roger Humphry, Eye Surgeon and Stars Appeal Ambassador, (pictured above) said “These donation points offer a quick and easy way for our brilliant supporters to donate whilst visiting the Hospital. They will complement the excellent work of our team of volunteer coin collectors who we are looking forward to welcoming back as restrictions are eased, and the funds they raise will be vital to us in continuing our work helping thousands of local people in Hospital.”
