Bay Hospitals Charity is inviting local businesses to contribute items for raffle or auction for its Christmas fundraising appeal.

The charity raises funds to support care for patients of University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, including at Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

An online fund-raising effort is planned for December and the charity has issued an appeal for donations of goods and services to help raise as money for the cause as possible.

Contributions of prizes for our Christmas fundraising drive will be gratefully received. All donations large and small will help us to support patients and the amazing teams caring for them in our hospitals.
