We know that when we work together, we achieve great things, which is why we are creating a business club for like-minded companies who share this vision. Join us on our mission to raise much-needed funds to support the ten hospitals of Bristol and Weston.

Each business will make a £1,000 donation to join the Business 22 Club and, together, we will aim to raise £22,000 in 2022, to invest into crucial hospital projects. Your support can help us reach this target.

We are seeking local businesses from a wide variety of sectors to come together and create an impact in local hospitals; join up and help support the incredible NHS that is there for you, your staff, and your family and friends in times of need.

And you will get an incredible package of benefits, which will help you to communicate how you have helped do great things.
