Rainbow Gardens

The Trust are launching a fundraising appeal to develop memorial ‘Rainbow Gardens’ at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Bassetlaw Hospital in memory of all the local people who have sadly lost their life to Covid-19, including our beloved colleagues Kevin Smith and Dr Medhat Atalla.

The gardens be created in their honour and will be dedicated spaces for families and colleagues to visit, a calm and peaceful place,  to remember those loved ones we have lost.  To date 200 people have sadly died at the Trust from Covid-19, including our two beloved colleagues.

During the pandemic the rainbow has become a symbol of support for the NHS and it feels fitting that we create rainbow gardens in memory of those we have sadly lost.

We are asking the people of Doncaster and Bassetlaw for their support in helping to raise;

  • £25k to create a garden at DRI and Bassetlaw Hospital sites
  • £30k to commission the materials to create a memorial at DRI for lost colleagues
  • £35k to purchase additional tables and benches to be located across all sites for patients and staff to enjoy

However there is no limit and whatever we raise will be used to make our hospitals better places to be.
