How to make a donation

Making a donation or paying in money from your fundraising event

The Luton and Dunstable Hospital Charitable Fund exists to support and enhance the services of the Luton and Dunstable Hospital. 

It funds additional equipment, supports medical research and provides the extras that make being in hospital a more comfortable and less distressing experience for patients and their families. The L&D Charitable Fund relies on various fundraising activities and generous donations to keep providing high quality care to its patients. If you would like your donation to benefit a certain ward or department please let us know. 

If you are a UK tax payer you can also make your donation even more valuable to us by opting to Gift Aid it.  This means we are able to reclaim 25p of tax for every £1 you have donated at no extra cost to you!  Simply complete the Gift Aid declaration as you make your donation. Please download a donation form here.

Amazon Wishlists: 

As an alternative to a cash donation, we do have Amazon Wishlists setup for different areas around the Trust. The male, female and children's gift lists are mainly for Christmas presents for patients, however the Dementia and Someries Suite (Delivery space for sleeping babies) lists are items we require throughout the year.
