Our Charity makes a real difference to our patients, their families and the staff that treat them above and beyond that provided by the NHS.

We support the Trust’s Vision to be an organisation striving continuously to improve patient experience and outcomes - to be safe and effective, kind and caring and exceeding expectation.

The RWT Charity Finger Spelling Bee
Our Charity: The RWT Charity Finger Spelling Bee

Sign up for our finger spelling bee and help raise funds in aid of hearing services at the Trust.

Deaf Awareness Week is the 4th-9th May! We have created a Fingerspelling Bee fundraising pack to give you a fun way to fundraise with a difference and a chance to learn something new with friends and family. This can be a challenge for both children and adults. Why not ask to be sponsored for every word spelled correctly using sign language.

Not only is it a fun and educational activity to do at home, it’s also a great way to increase deaf awareness. Use your time during Deaf Awareness Week to learn the alphabet or how to spell a few chosen words using sign language. Hold your Finger Spelling Bee at the end of the week to put your new knowledge to the test and earn sponsorship!

Hear from Lucy Dearn, an audiologist at the Trust

To register for your fundraising pack, please email rwh-tr.fundraisingteam@nhs.net
