Margaret Murton, along with her friends Pat and Tira, have generously donated a bench to the Forever and Always Garden at Derriford Hospital. The Forever and Always Garden is a peaceful space, managed by Plymouth Hospitals Charity and the Phoebe Hoskin Trust, for families to sit and remember young ones they may have lost at the hospital.

Your choice

Because you are the heart of everything we do, we want to let you know 

Your donation could be used to buy, or contribute to providing, new specialist equipment or brighten up the hospital environment. Each ward area and department let the charity know what they would like to raise money for, and we can share that with you if you’d like. 

There are some legal restrictions on how we can raise, manage and distribute charity donations. The rules are clear that money raised cannot be spent on 'core' clinical services - things the NHS is obliged to provide. Instead, donations and fundraising income are used to help your hospital go over and above what would otherwise be possible.
