If you are interested in fundraising for us, then you are in the right place. We offer many tips, hints and tools that will help you smash your target.

Our mission is: “To enhance the experience of all people using our services including staff, patients and their families. We will do this by providing additional facilities and supporting innovative projects that create a comfortable and secure environment.”
Your Trust Charity adds value to vital services at City Hospital, Sandwell General Hospital, Rowley Regis Hospital, over 150 community-based services, and the Midland Metropolitan University Hospital in Smethwick, currently under construction. Our work also includes supporting specialist facilities such as the Birmingham & Midland Eye Centre (BMEC) and Leasowes Intermediate Care Centre. This is essential work within an area which is situated in one of the most deprived local authorities in England, where 29 per cent of children and older people live in poverty.
This pack is full of top tips to make your fundraising a huge success, whether it is a bake sale, a 10km run, a marathon, or for those of you who like to live life on the edge – a skydive. We will support you every step of the way, so please get in touch. Thank you for your support and good luck on your fundraising.
Legacies are often a difficult subject to talk about, particularly in the context of treating people in hospital. But whether they have health problems or not, many people are comforted knowing that they plan to leave some money to a good cause. If you want to leave a legacy to the Trust, you need to write it into your will and have it witnessed.
All amounts are enormously appreciated and can have a significant impact on our work. We will ensure that your gift will be administered in a professional and sensitive manner.
It is important to remember that every gift from a will that we receive is free from inheritance tax.
Jane Stubley – Lead Heart Failure Nurse
What does Jane do?
Jane is the lead of the Heart Failure Nurse team at the Trust, where she and her team provide all support to patients who have heart failure problems. She was the one that established the Heart failure service at Sandwell Hospital in 2001 and built up the team to where it is today.
What is Jane passionate about?
She knows that education is the key to helping nurses realise their full potential and that will directly benefit our patients. So she created the Heart Failure charity fund within Your Trust charity. This fund aims to support our nurses to go on courses, so they can learn more about heart failure and improve their understanding of patients’ needs.
How does Jane raise fund for Your Trust Charity?
Jane has been asked to teach at different universities, provide training programmes, and be part of national projects to improve palliative care. She donates all the money she earns through this to the charity fund. She said: “I just thought it’s a good way to give a little extra back to the NHS and improve our patient experience.
“I am glad to have Your Trust Charity support me all the way from fundraising to giving the money to the right cause. The fund enables patients to receive better care and make them feel reassured that they are in the right place and cared by high quality nurses.”
Key facts about Jane:
- She was the face of a national campaign to raise awareness of heart failure, which led her to be featured on the back of buses across London
- She enjoys doing water sport in Wales with her family
- Jane is also a keen pianist
