Southampton Hospital Charity are the lead local charity for the ABP Southampton Marathon
Southampton Hospital Charity helps to enhance the world class care and treatment of patients at University Hospital Southampton (UHS) and Princess Anne Hospital by raising funds and providing financial support to areas of the hospital service that lie beyond the scope of NHS funding.
UHS provides services to some 1.9 million people living in Southampton and south Hampshire, plus specialist services such as neurosciences, cardiac services and children’s intensive care to more than 3.7 million people in central southern England and the Channel Islands.
By running for Southampton Hospital Charity, you’re helping to raise vital funds that make a real impact to the patients, families and staff who visit UHS. With your help, we’ll be able to refurbish and equip a specialist sensory retreat for the Children’s Hospital and fund research that enables us to remain at the cutting edge of medicine.
Kelly Metcalfe, Southampton Hospital Charity says “Sponsoring the ABP Southampton Marathon is the highlight of our events calendar. The race is a great opportunity for us to engage our supporters on home turf and is proving ever popular, with growing numbers of our supporters taking on the challenge. We are excited about our partnership and about enabling our supporters to challenge themselves and make a real difference to their local hospital”.
