Who are we?
Royal Devon Hospitals Charity is the official charity of the Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. The charity formed following the merger of hospital charities Over and Above and the RD&E Charity. Same charity. Different name. Double the fundraising power for YOUR local NHS!
What do we support?
The charity supports 2 acute hospitals, 17 community hospitals and a range of community, specialist and primary care services across north, mid and eastern Devon. It’s our mission to power up and push the limits of what’s possible with NHS funding. With your support, we can buy new state-of the-art equipment; create world-class patient and staff environments; support additional staff development, training and wellbeing projects; and fund cutting-edge research.
How can you help make a difference?
Choose to raise money for the hospital, ward or department that you would like to support. There are more than 250 different funds altogether and the money you raise will go to the cause closest to you. Alternatively, if you’d like to raise money for general funds, we’ll ensure your donation is used to do brilliant things at your local hospitals, wherever the need is greatest.
