Raising money for Bournemouth Hospital Charity

FJB Hotel’s donates £2,651 to Bournemouth Hospital Charity to fund replacement toys and games in their children’s section of the emergency department waiting room and treatment area.

    • With the help of all our staff and generous guests, we’ve helped make a difference to the lives of many young people in our local area through Cash For Kids, supported by local radio station Wave 105. In 2017 we raised £20,071 and here’s one of the charities we’ve helped in 2018.

Bournemouth Hospital Charity was established to enhance the care and treatment of patients accessing NHS services at the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals above and beyond what can be funded by the NHS alone. The charity’s funds directly benefit patients and staff. The additional equipment and training the charity funds enables the Trust to provide quicker diagnosis and treatment helping people to return to their everyday way of life sooner, in more comfortable and pleasant surroundings.

We, alongside all our fantastic guests, will be providing the Bournemouth Hospital Charity with a grant for £2,651 to provide new toys and games in their children’s section of the emergency department waiting room and treatment area. A visit to hospital or medical clinic can be frightening, traumatic and a challenge. This is not only true of a patient but any accompanying siblings or friends. When a child visits hospital their usual routines are disrupted and they may be separated from their family and other familiar people for periods of time. Being able to play whilst in hospital means children can continue with an aspect of their normal life, reduce stress and also provide some much needed fun. Distraction through play provides a strong role in comforting patients.

  • A wonderful surprise awaited Bournemouth Hospital Charity when FJB Hotels and Wave 105 visited the team to discuss their funding proposals however unknown to them FJB Hotels had already performed a significant analysis on the charity and decided this was indeed a fantastic cause. A cheque for a staggering £2,651 was presented to Bournemouth Hospital Charity – much to their delight!

By opting to add £1 to your room rate upon check out can really make a difference to a child’s life.
