Working with our nominated partners Teenage Cancer Trust and six West Midlands Hospitals, including Hereford County Hospital, the Trust funds new medical equipment, community support care,

specialist nurses along with their training and development, refurbishment of wards including High Dependency Units and A&E Paediatric zones and much more.
The Trust funds are raised through the Daisychain Benevolent Fund Ltd chain of shops and numerous fundraising activities. All the proceeds are distributed by the Trust to fund these vital medical equipment and services delivered by our partnered organisations. In addition, by working with our nominated causes, each shop actively promotes each organisation within the community by advertising events and increasing awareness of their needs.
