Learn how to donate to our hospital charities
There are many ways in which to support the Hospital Charities, take part in fundraising events, organise your own activities, have your business support the charity, give while your shopping and many more.
Learn more about ongoing appeals and charity campaigns, these may be for specific pieces of equipment, the refurbishment of a facility or the development of new facilities.
At present there are two ways you can generate donations for our charity while online shopping; easyfundraising and Amazonsmile. Both are free to use and don’t impact upon the offers you receive when shopping online.
You can now donate to the STS charity while shopping online at no cost to yourself!
easyfundraising is a shopping portal with links through to all major online retail sites. When you goes through the easyfundraising portal to a retail site and make a purchase the retailer makes a donation to your chosen charity. You will not be charged extra and you have access to the same offers that are available to you if you went direct to the retailer site.
The STS Charity is registered as a cause with AmazonSmile and you will be able to generate donations for us while shopping on Amazon.
To use AmazonSmile, simply go to smile.amazon.co.uk on your web browser or activate AmazonSmile in the Amazon Shopping app on your iOS or Andriod phone within the Settings or Programme & Features menu. On your web browser, you can add a bookmark to smile.amazon.co.uk to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile. Please always check that you have been taken to the Smile.Amazone website before shopping - if you purchase using the default Amazon website the charity will not receive a donation.
Once you’ve activated your account you can select the “South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust Charitable Funds” as your cause, and then you're ready to go shopping!
