Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre presentation | August 2018
Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre, one of a handful of hospitals in the country to be rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission, has chosen Plymouth Drake Foundation as its charity for this year – and big hearted patients, visitors and members of staff have already raised £370.
Plymouth Drake Foundation’s aim is to develop wealthy, healthy and lively communities in Plymouth. It achieves this by granting funds to charities, community groups and social enterprises throughout the city. To date more than 260 groups have benefited in the city, to the tune of over £800,000 in grant awards.
Mark White, Hospital Director at Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre, commented: “We are delighted to have adopted Plymouth Drake Foundation as charity for the year. We are impressed by the amount of good the charity does in the wider community of Plymouth, and its ethos mirrors our own in our commitment to the city.”
Maurice West, Chairman of Plymouth Drake Foundation, added: “We are very grateful to the team at Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre for adopting us as their charity this year. Support from local organisations is vital to us and helps us to deliver much needed funding to deserving groups throughout the city.”
The team at Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre will run a number of fundraising activities in aid of Plymouth Drake Foundation throughout the year. More details will be available on its website – www.peninsulatreatmentcentre.nhs.uk – and on its Facebook page.
