Derby Hospitals Band raises money for Derby Hospitals. Any money raised at concerts, or other public performances goes into a charity fund account. All area’s of Derby & Burton Hospitals are then welcome to ‘bid’ for this money. This can be used for things to enhance the patience experience – over and above facilities and services provided by the NHS.

Here are some of the items the Derby Hospital Bands has provided since 2011

The labour Ward          – Trinity Plush cushions, Dyson Fans

The DART appeal        – Radiotherpay equipment

London Road Community Hospital – Recliner chairs

Childrens Ward and Play Team – Toys and Games, donation towards refurbishment

Ward 102               – Rotastand LOCO

Urology Day Case Unit – Rotastand solo, Bladder scanner charger

Ward 402            – 2 seater settee

Ward 216             – Observation Machine

Band running costs such as purchase of music, advertising etc are met by band members who pay £1 a week (you only pay when you play – we don’t charge for weeks when you aren’t there !)

We are incredible fortunate and grateful to the Royal Derby Hospital who provide us with free of charge rehearsal space. This puts us in a relatively undemanding financial situation for which we are truely grateful.

Please consider supporting us by coming to our concerts which will be advertised on our website, facebook group, and via local media.
