Sadly, BT have announced that they will be closing down its fundraising platform MyDonate on 30th June this year. After evaluating alternative platforms, HaTS has chosen to use the VirginMoneyGiving service, a well-established service with low charges compared to other mainstream providers. HaTS will commence using Virginmoneygiving as of 23rd April 2019. Find out more on our Donate page by clicking here. The following letter has been posted/emailed to our contacts list -Letter
HaTS is an independent charity, whose overriding objective is to provide and improve
upon the support and care provided to patients and families of the Haematology and
Transplant Unit (HTU) situated in The Christie Hospital.
Originally known as ALUPAL, the charity, celebrating 30 years of existence in 2016,
helps patients and their families overcome some of the day to day challenges they
encounter when faced with life threatening illnesses and periods of isolation.
Whilst recognising the excellent clinical care and support provided by the HTU,
HaTS also recognises that sometimes patients and their families need that little
extra support which is often outside of the NHS resources.
The funds raised by HaTS are used to provide financial assistance to those patients
and carers experiencing difficulties. The funds also help to improve the service
provided on the unit, mainly by providing Complementary Therapies to patients and
carers alike. These therapies help with the physical and emotional effects experienced
as a result of a cancer diagnosis.
