Silk Road supports our Children's Ward

silk road logoThe Silk Road Restaurant and Bar has announced that it will be adding a new dish to its menu for the month of July  - and to make it even more tasty, they're donating 20% of all proceeds from the dish to the Children’s Ward at Milton Keynes Hospital.

Award-winning head Chef Saj Kahn created the dish to celebrate their win at the MKFLA where they were crowned Best Asian Restaurant of the Year. It's called Rajasthani Laal Maas - braised Elwy valley Welsh Lamb in traditional Rajasthani Laal Maas sauce served with sweet pumpkin. Sounds lovely!

You can enjoy this dish for £15.95, with 20% of all proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Ward at Milton Keynes Hospital. The offer will take place throughout July - and what better way to support our children's ward than by sampling a deliicous curry?

Rotary put best foot forward for hospital

The risk of falls in vulnerable hospital patients is set to reduce with Rotary support during Falls Awareness Week (June 17-21).

This generous support will benefit patients at high-risk of falling – particularly confused or elderly patients – by funding special alarms to be used on wards such as the Stroke Unit.

We've changed our name!

MC HC - LogoNoStrapline SThis month we changed our charity name from Healthcare Charity: MK to the Milton Keynes Hospital Charity. We're really pleased with our new name and hope you are too, as after discussions with a number of supporters, staff and volunteers we think it better reflects who we are and what we do - the charity raising funds for our local hospital. Don't forget that when fundraising for the hospital you quote our charity name and number (1048297) on all your publicity materials.This will ensure the public know which charity the money is going towards.

Budding entrepreneurs show support for Little Lives

giles brook 2This month we're working with Giles Brook Primary School in Tattenhoe, who have taken up the £1 Challenge for our Little Lives Appeal. Each child in year 6 has been given £1 and asked to come up with a business idea that would generate income, to be donated to the Neonatal Unit appeal afterwards.  

The ten and eleven year-old pupils started the challenge last week and will be growing their business ideas throughout the month. The children have already come up with some inspiring ideas including a car washing business, cake-baking, producing comic books and organising a market place at the school. We can't wait to hear more!

For more information, or if you would like your school to run a £1 Challenge, please contact Fundraising Manager Vanessa Holmes on fundraising@mkhospital.nhs.uk or 01908 826690.
