NHS Covid-19 appeal smashes £10million milestone
AN URGENT appeal launched by NHS Charities Together to support hospital staff and volunteers at the frontline of the Covid-19 crisis has already raised more than £10million of an £100million target.
Thanks to a £10million commitment by XTX Markets within hours of its launch, the fundraising appeal is already off to a flying start.
The Covid-19 Urgent Appeal is run by NHS Charities Together, which is the national charity allowed to receive charitable donations on behalf of the NHS. NHS Charities Together represents 140 member NHS charities throughout the UK. Funds raised will help support the health and wellbeing of NHS staff and volunteers supporting COVID-19 patients and support the NHS in ways above and beyond that which core NHS funding can ordinarily provide.
Speaking of the substantial donation by XTX Markets, she added: “Since the campaign went live, we’ve been immensely humbled by the generosity and support from individuals and groups. It shows the appeal is capturing people’s hearts and the donation by XTX Markets is also very gratefully received.”
