Salisbury Reds bus firm backing Stars Appeal for 2024 and 2025

THE Stars Appeal – the Salisbury District Hospital Charity – has rolled into 2024 with good news from a city bus firm.

Salisbury Reds has named the organisation its official good cause for 2024 and 2025.

The Stars Appeal raises money to improve facilities at the hospital for patients and their families, funding extra care and equipment over and above that provided by the NHS.

Now, the bus company will spend the next two years raising funds and awareness to help the charity provide a wide range of services for patients and their families.

“Our relationship with the charity spans more than 10 years – with many of our staff benefiting directly from the support it provides,” a spokesperson said.

“Reds colleagues voted, and we’re delighted we will once again be raising as much money as possible for this vital resource.

“Salisbury Reds has a busy calendar of fundraising planned, and will also be promoting the charity on-board and on the rear of a bus.

“We hope our messages will be seen by thousands traveling across the region – and this will help increase awareness for this very worthy cause.”

The Stars Appeal helps across all wards and departments, with a particular focus on cancer, cardiac care and children.

Consultant cardiologist and Stars Appeal ambassador, Dr Tom Jackson, said: “We are so grateful that Salisbury Reds continue to provide their brilliant support for the Stars Appeal.

“They have supported us for many years and now to be their Charity of the Year is fantastic. In my department the Stars Appeal has made an incredible difference by funding a second lab in our cardiac suite and other state-of-the-art equipment. The support of Salisbury Reds will help us do even more for patients across the Hospital. Thank you so much.”
