Join us and raise funds to support your local NHS charity, help a ward or department close to your heart. By taking part in an event and choosing Edinburgh & Lothians Health Foundation as your charity, you can help NHS Lothian staff do even more for patients when they are caring for them in hospital or in the community.  From refurbishing wards to make them even more comfortable for patients when they are sick and unwell, to providing some thing as simple as a sofa bed so visitors can stay close by to loved ones when they are really ill to funding cutting edge technology or equipment.  All these things and more have the potential to transform the way NHS Lothian deliver care.

Want to get involved?  Here are some events that you can sign up to and become one of our amazing fundraisers!
