Latest events

We have an exciting calendar of events lined up for 2023! You can get involved in many different ways - take part in one of popular Golf Days, push your limits with a sky dive or a place in the Great North Run or talk to us about organising your own event to fundraise for your local NHS.

A lasting legacy

Legacies form an important part of our on-going fundraising activity. Never an easy discussion to have but even a small gift left as a legacy will make such a big difference to the work we do as CDDFT Charity.

We would welcome a conversation to share more on this with you.

County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust Charity supports the thousands of patients cared for by County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust.

Your local NHS Charity, through your kind donations and support from our local communities, is able to make a real difference to patient care and the experience of patients coming into hospital, clinics or being cared for in their own homes across County Durham and Darlington.

Your donations help:

  • Enhance staff training to keep up to date with innovative and new medical advances
  • Improve the environment for our patients, families, friends and carers
  • Us to deliver the best possible treatments through the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment and technology

Your NHS Charity is only available to do this thanks to the generosity of our patients, their friends and families, carers, our CDDFT colleagues and local communities - Thank you!
