Beacon - Our charity

Beacon Charity raises money to make a difference to the experience people have when they are being cared for by Solent NHS Trust, covering areas not covered or fully supported by NHS funds.

We are really grateful to everyone who helps raise money for us, we realise every penny counts and we work hard to ensure donations are spent wisely.

There are many ways you can get involved. You could make a simple donation, organise a fundraising event or donate in memory of a loved one.

Making a donation

  • To make a donation you can visit our online donations page here
  • Or, you can set up a Go Fund Me page and link Solent NHS Charity to it
  • Alternatively, you can send a cheque to Solent NHS Charity

You can specify the team/service you would like your money allocated to, or you can ask that it be put to best use in the general fund.

Fundraising opportunities

There are many ways you can fundraise for the charity. From a sponsored event, to a coffee morning. 

The Charity asks everyone who fundraises for them to fill in an agreement form before they start stating that they are fundraising in aid of Beacon, Solent NHS Charity. This can be found in the fundraising information pack. 

Personal challenges

Personal, inspirational challenges can be a great way to raise money for charity. From fun runs to bike rides, mountain treks and jumping out of a plane there are plenty of challenges out there.

An open challenge is a fantastic way to do this, with a group of like-minded people all raising money for different charities. At present Beacon is not running any bespoke challenges, but if you can find a challenge to sign up for where the money can be donated to us then we would love to hear from you.
