Established by Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, Crosshouse Children’s Fund raises money for the children’s wards, maternity unit and neonatal unit located at Crosshouse.
The fund aims to enhance hospital experiences for patients by providing enhanced equipment and support services that can help to alleviate the worries of a hospital visit.
Each year more than 25,000 babies, children and young people are treated at University Hospital Crosshouse, and the Ayrshire Maternity and Neonatal Units.
With the help of communities across Ayrshire and Arran, Crosshouse Children's Fund aims to raise funds to help these youngsters and their families have the best possible hospital experiences.
In establishing the fund, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity is expanding its reach to support children in hospital across the West of Scotland. To date the charity has already invested more than £30million in to Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children.
"Staff at NHS Ayrshire and Arran already provide outstanding care to young patients and their families, but we hope that we’ll be able to help teams at Crosshouse achieve even more in key areas they wish to develop. All of the money raised in support of Crosshouse Children’s Fund will be invested in Ayrshire, and we hope that local people, businesses and communities will get behind this important local cause”.
