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.
