Doncaster and Bassetlaw Birth Appeal

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals is hoping to raise £100,000 for maternity services.

We need your support!

We are hoping to raise £100,000 to provide additional equipment and enhance the environments in the Trust’s maternity and neonatal units to give women, babies and their families in Doncaster and Bassetlaw the very best possible care.

What are we raising funds for?

We don’t currently have the furniture to allow partners or family members to rest during a longer labour or to stay with a new mum who needs extra support. This can add unnecessary worries to a significant, exciting life experience.

Funds from the appeal will help the Trust to provide items such as:

  • Reclining chairs for partners/ family members to stay with women who are in labour on our labour wards
  • Chair beds for partners/ family members to stay with women post birth who need extra support after a caesarean or induction
  • Updates to furniture, décor and blinds to help give both units a homely, calm and relaxing environment
  • Updates to décor and furniture in the family room, to support families during difficult times

How can you get involved?

Local residents and businesses wishing to support the appeal can contact the charity office on 01302 644244 or donating at
