A great start to 2018 after our busiest year yet in fundraising for a brand new state-of-the-art Children’s Emergency & Trauma Department at Southampton University Hospital. The new department will become a major trauma centre delivering life-saving and acute specialist care for critically ill children from across nine different regions, stretching from Devon to West Sussex, Oxfordshire to The Channel Islands.
The #2MillionSteps appeal was launched in June 2016 after a successful campaign to lobby the government to match-fund our £2m to give the total £4m needed to realise the build of this department.
The team at The Murray Parish Trust have worked closely with Southampton Hospital Charity and we are excited to reach this incredible milestone in our campaign.
We could not have got this far without the really wonderful support from our sponsors, many local businesses and organisations, local and national press and our outstanding fundraisers who have literally climbed mountains and more for The Murray Parish Trust over the past year.
”Half way there!! The Murray Parish Trust in partnership with SHC is monumentally grateful for all the support on the journey so far. We hope it continues for the final million pounds so that the children of the South get the vital care and attention they will be come to rely on from a pioneering new Emergency and Trauma unit.”
– Jim Murray co-founder of the Trust.
