How to make a donation
We are here to support and enhance the services of Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Bedford Hospital and Luton & Dunstable University Hospital (L&D). When making a payment please state which site and which ward or department you wish to support across all types of payment. This helps the team ensure your payment goes to the right place.
Our charity 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. We rely on various fundraising activities, generous donations and gifts in kind to keep providing high quality care to patients. If you would like your donation to benefit a certain ward or department please do get in touch with a member of the team.
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 .

To make a debit or credit card payment over the phone, please call our Luton office on 01582 718 289 (weekdays 09:00 – 16:30) to make this payment over the phone. A member of the team will ask for the information from your card for the payment so please have your card handy.

Without imposing any trust we note that you may wish your donation to benefit a specific ward or departments. However, in the case that we are unable to meet this request this donation may be used to purchase something of equal benefit for Bedford Hospital or Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
